Today I think I will take a little different path today. After two years of trying it looks as if our house in PA will finally sell. It is with a little sadness that I write this. After raising my first three children in houses that were small, well large enough to raise our little family, I was pregnant with my fourth child and we bought a huge house in which we all would have fit very comfortably. The one catch is that of my three grown two of them were already out of the house. So we were moving into this four bedroom house with one teenage daughter and a new infant. We quickly managed to fill the house and fixed it up the way we liked. Then my husband got a new job and we had to move. That was two years ago and in that two years we tried to sell the house, but to no avail. Everything we had done to personalize the house has been undone along with many other repairs to make the house more appealing to buyers.
So anyway today we recieved the first offer on the house and are now playing the offer counter-offer game and we wait. Needless to say we are Overjoyed at the prospect, especially based on what we have endured the last two years. I also feel a little sad. My fourth child was brought home to this house and other than where we are now is the only one she has ever known. When my first granddaughter was born this was the home she was brought to, since her mother still lived with us. It's also the only home she has ever had. There are a lot of good memories in that house and at one point so much of the work we had done was our signature. So today as I make this post it is Overjoyed with a little sadness as a new chapter in our lives begins. God is good.
O is for overjoyed with a little sadness
