Bittersweet

Well some of you know we finally sold our house.The new one that we built a couple of years ago. The lady that bought it was a 92 yr. old and she is sassier then a box of hot tamales...you would never know she was that old. The first time i met her was on the day we closed, and she said, The lord is going to bless you for all your hard work some day, and Im just glad i get to be the recipent of your nice home. It was crazy how it all panned out, but at the end of the day, I am so glad she gets to live there. We didn't even put it up for SALE. Can you believe that? I got a phone call from a guy one day saying he heard we were going to sale it, and that he might be interested. Two weeks later i showed him the home and he said he was looking for his mother who would be moving here from CA. Two days later he put in a offer and three weeks later we closed. It was a cash offer so everything went super fast.
I have to say that I did cry. I cried for the gratitude that i felt that the Lord was blessing us to help us move on from this whole ordeal. I personally have learned so much through this, and although it has been rough, I never would have not wanted to go through it....I could have done without our last renters, but at the end of the day, I know the lord needed me to be humbled, and go through this long trial for a reason. So farewell to the home on 1390N. you are now only a memory.................

Oh, Val! So sad! Sometimes when those kinds of things happen so quickly, that saying goodbye is too rushed and incomplete. Good luck with the next chapter.

Isn't it such a relief to sale a house? It's like the hugest weight lifted off your shoulders. I'm so happy for you :)

I'm so excited for you also. Sounds like things are really starting to go good. It's so nice that you can look back and learn from your trial. What a great outlook you have on life :)
