|No Problems - Bakersfield, California|
I've mentioned several times now that I'm moving to Utah in May. It's coming up pretty fast. I'm in the process of buying a home.
I've only been in Utah a couple of times before. I'm very much a stranger to the place. I don't know my way around real well. I've only once been in the town where the house is that I'm buying.
There is a lot to worry about. Is it the right house? The right neighborhood? The right town? A lot of "what if's" too. What if I don't like it? What if the sale falls through? What if the sellers didn't take good care of it and it has a lot of problems?
Yesterday my family and I ate at an Asian restaurant in Bakersfield, California. In my wife's fortune cookie was the message, "You have a strong desire for a home and your family comes first." In my fortune cookie was printed, "You will have no problems in your home."
These chance words were very encouraging. I have no idea if they really mean anything. It could be simple luck that we received them. Coincidence. But it seems like a little too coincidental.
Only time will tell if everything works out like our desserts told us it would. I'm hopeful. I think the house that I'm buying is going to be a great home for my family and I. It will be a good home base for photography adventures. And I might even be able to put in a darkroom.
