A time to keep and a time…

001We put an offer on a house last night.  I am happy and thankful that we have found one to meet my downsizing, handicap accessible needs so quickly.  I feel blessed that we will be able to purchase the new home and move in soon, while waiting for our house to sell.  I am at peace that this is the right thing for our family.

AND, (which I told someone on Twitter yesterday is a word I don’t typically begin sentences with LOL) I am sad. Wistful. Sentimental.

0051We moved into this house when our boys were 4, 5 and 8.  They have grown up here and it has been such a great house to allow “boys to be boys”.  This back yard has been home to many a birthday party, dirt bike riding, hide and seek, jumping in leaves and more.

0061In those trees is the little fort the boys built with Mike, several years ago.  Star Wars battles of epic proportions have been re-enacted there as well as camping under the stars with Daddy.

Thank you house!  You have served my family well and while it is time to move on, you will forever have a special place in my heart (and Jared, Jason, Matt and Mike’s as well)

  1. It is hard to say goodbye to a house…but so glad you found a new one that will work better for your needs now.

  2. Such sweet memories to be forever held in your heart:)

  3. That looks like a really fun house! It would be hard to say goodbye to all those memories.

  4. Moving is hard. But at least you will always have the memories. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  5. Moving is always bittersweet. I hope you enjoy your new home!

  6. I have MS too. I’m 36, diagnosed in 2003. Currently in my first official flare and not feeling so great. It’s nice to make connections with other PwMS. Glad you found a home so quickly!
