Press Forward Saints
Well, the offer came in. For a first offer, it was pretty good. Better than we expected. We countered (of course) and expect to hear back from them today or tomorrow. The long and short of it is that I think it's gonna work. They saw 25 homes in 3 days and are pretty set on ours. The only drawback? The move in date is a little nebulous. It could be anywhere from mid-June to mid-July, depending on whether they sale their home or if their relocation company purchases it. Part of me is thrilled to not have to be out in 4 weeks and yet another part of me doesn't want to keep showing it "just in case."
I'm tired. That's all there is to it.
So while we wait to hear back from them, we will still have an open house tomorrow and we will start moving our not-needed-now items to a storage shed in prep for the inevitable move. And I'll start calling on rentals. Today.
I know many emotional moments are ahead as I start going through and packing away Bennett's things once more. It's only been three months since his death and everything is still so very fresh. But I believe in new beginnings. In fresh starts. And I believe in Hope.
And so please pray for us, friends. We are tired. Oh so very tired. And yet we believe we are doing what is best for our family. I just need the emotional and physical endurance to do it all.
And with His help, I will.
P.S. I just turned in the design for Bennett's Memorial. It should be installed in the next two weeks, just in time for his 2nd birthday. Any ideas how we can celebrate his life?
