We’re closing a chapter of our lives today. It was a very good chapter. We’ve finally sold our other house and we’re closing with the new owners this morning. We feel truly blessed that God has sent us a precious family who will love and care for this home the way we did. It’s what we prayed for after all. I pray that they too will be blessed and have peace and joy each day they live in this house.
I didn’t realize it would feel this bittersweet. Letting go. I imagined we would feel relieved when we no longer had 2 mortgages to make, and we do. But this house is special. It’s where we planted our first garden. And 10th wedding anniversary roses. It’s where we pressed our little one’s hands and feet into fresh concrete to preserve a special moment. So, yes. It’s a bittersweet day today.
I will count my blessings today and praise God for leading us to this new place. Our sweet homestead.
