Loooking For Signs

When faced with a big decision, one usually looks for signs to help guide them. I have always been a strong believer in signs and what they symbolize, whether I am faced with a difficult decision, or not. I am forever searching for meaning in the world around me. This can be exhausting at times, because some things are just the way they are and not up to us to interpret or understand. I also believe in fate and that I am led by a higher power to people, places, and things.
I am happy to report that we found a house and such a wonderful house it is!

Every morning this past week when we left the base to begin another grueling day of house hunting, I noticed a beaver on the side of the road. I honestly don't think I have seen a beaver before, just roaming around, other than in the zoo. After the third day of seeing him, I started to wonder if maybe he was a "sign". You may remember that in Germany I was attending classes at the University of Google. I have decided to continue my studies here in Dayton and will be enrolling in more classes.

I found that the beaver symbolizes building your life around your dreams. The beaver was telling me to believe in my dreams and by working diligently they will become a reality.

I did not see the beaver the morning of the day that the sellers accepted our offer. I looked hard for him in his usual place. He was probably off building a new home to begin his own dreams. This will be our first house together; a place of my dreams and a place to dream even more.
