Texas, Here We Come…

My husband has received a promotion, which means we have to re-locate to Houston, Tx.  I am so grateful for the promotion, during a time when most are being downsized or laid off, yet our families reside within the NC/SC area.  Our grandkids are minutes down the road and aging parents only a couple of hours away.

Now, the move will not be an immediate event, because there are too many things to get done. We will become what the media calls a commuter family.  Being in the same house for seventeen years, having to sift through those years of our lives, will take time.  All of this said, I decided and made it clear to the boys, that this is going to be a family adventure!  A chance for all relatives, on both sides of the family, to explore and discover new places in America.  For when God opens a door bursting with opportunities, it is how you grab them that matters most!  We will grab our God-given opportunity thankfully, joyfully, and with enthusiastic expectations!

My writings will experience new perspectives, and the ideas have already started pouring out.  Like the other day, when I was thinking Texas, rodeos, and country music.  I believe I have come up with the beginnings of the next big country music song lyrics and I will share them with you!

How to Roll

Hindsight is 20/20

Beergoggles make you stupid, not funny.

God knows your real soul,

And baby this ain’t no way to roll.

I woke this morning to a banging,

In my head and at my front door.

Found myself late for work,

And the dog had peed on the floor.

It seems that last night,

With my girls out on the town,

We did some things we shouldn’t have

And now words gotten around.

Hindsight is 20/20

Beergoggles make you stupid, not funny.

God knows your real soul,

And baby this ain’t no way to roll.

Ok, that is all I have for right now.  And I am sure I will add a little more to this because there has to be a lesson learned ending.

I wonder when they talk about the Texas Tornado, in Texas, if it was in anticipation of me.  I am a pretty dusty old crag and I do blow some wind every now and then! LOL!
