We stood back and looked at the leftover wood. “We almost have enough for another house,” Greg said. I thought again of my childhood troll houses, but decided to keep quiet, just for now. We still have our own home to finish, but it certainly occurred to me that it would be fun to build a troll cabin off in the woods. Shh ...

    We have lived in the creek valley for 14 years now. Sometimes it feels as though we have always lived here and it is hard to imagine ever having lived anywhere else, but this morning I felt as though I had just arrived. I was amazed to discover the silver beauty of the frost crystals.

    When we woke up this morning, a light snow was falling, and it continued to fall well past evening. Curiously, though, the snow did not gather on the ground. Its presence was certainly visible, but it looked more like a light dusting of confectioner’s sugar spread out across the fields.

    With certainty I do realize that there are some things I simply cannot change. The winter weather will be what it will be, but I also suppose that I really should get up off the cabin’s front porch and go set a few bee feeders filled with honey out in the orchard. And as for the maples? I will just wait, and watch, and for the moment, enjoy listening to the wind chimes.

    I usually think that I am fairly optimistic, but of late my typically bright outlook on life has been put to the test. The valley’s seemingly endless sea of mud has begun to coat not only our creek world, but my disposition as well.

    Yes, indeed, things do seem to have a way of working out, and I have learned from our creek valley world that life does go wonderfully on.

    Perhaps now we should just keep on with the task at hand and finish building our log home.

    The seed catalogs have already begun to arrive in the mail, even though the new year has not yet dawned and spring is still months away, but as I leaf through the brightly colored pages, I am once again filled with a wonderful feeling of excited anticipation.

    We woke up early the next morning to drive back across the mountains to our creek valley, but before we left, I climbed the stairs of my cousin’s house to lean over the bed and hug his wife and daughter. With the warmth of their sleepy goodbyes, I knew that they would be just fine, wrapped securely by their small town, just as certainly as they snuggled into their warm comforters on a chilly winter morning.

    We may not be able to see or hear our neighbors along the creek valley road, but I certainly know that we have become part of a wonderful new neighborhood.
