|Snowing again even as the sign goes up!|
We did it. The house is ready, the sign is up on the front lawn and the lock box is on our front door. We are happy with all the work we have done. We could not have gotten it all ready if it wasn't for our parents and our kids. They all worked so hard, they have been amazing. Everything looks fresh and fantastic and all ready for a new family to move in.
It is has been fun over the past month to find treasures along the way as we have been cleaning and packing. Although we worked hard, we also had the pleasure of being distracted by wonderful memories that we have had in this house and in our life. Family pictures that were discovered tucked into books and other places were some of my favourite finds, as they produced smiles and conversations of, "Remember when....".
This really is a fantastic house for entertaining and we have taken full advantage in the six years that we have been here. So many significant conversations have taken place in our family room and in our kitchen. So many meals shared with friends, mission teams, church family and our own family. So much laughter has rung through the halls and so much music has been played and listened to within these walls. And of course outside our walls....on our driveway....in the backyard....on our balcony. It has been good to remember, as we look forward to a new chapter in our lives.
So let the showings begin!
