Good news or bad

When we arrived in the states all those years (10 yrs)ago. I brought myself a journal one because it had a nice poem inside which as the years have passed I have come to understand it's meaning but also so I could write down all the heartache, and sorrow I felt about leaving my home in England, my family and friends. I still remember the day Paul my husband came home with a large smile on his face with the news.
He said " I have good news and bad news, which do you want first?"
I said " The good news." ( hopeful that we had won the lottery, we didn't have much money back then)
"Well" he said " We could be moving to Scotland or to America."
" Okay" I said "What is the bad news?"
He looked at me then Said " We could be moving to Scotland or America." He was right the news could be taken as good or bad depending on your outlook. I didn't want to move to Scotland. Do you know how much snow they get there ? I hate the cold weather.So we were going to moving to the States. I should mention that my youngest son was three weeks old! I know what was I thinking , what was my husband thinking coming home and telling his post natal emotional wife that they were not only moving house but country......but 10 years later I look back into that journal with awe that we are here and my boys love it. My husband Paul and the boys all came American citizens last year. I am not ready yet to gave up my English passport, but like all things in my life when the time is right. I will know it.
