I didn’t know what I was looking for when I set off down the path of selling our old townhouse looking for greener pastures – more room to spread and play. I knew we needed it – all of us. What I didn’t realize how much we ALL needed it. If I wasn’t in love with this house before, I know that I am totally in love with the house now. And becoming more so each day. I have questioned my decision at times – to push for this – to work so hard for this, because none of it was easy.
Getting the old house set to sell was hard, packing up was hard, finding a new place was hard and we looked around every curve for the right one. I know I have thanked J for hanging in there with me through all of this, but I am not sure anyone can know how hard it was for each of us. We fought each step, at times each other, but when I see this joy and happiness, I know it was all worth it. We made the right choices, we are coming out on the other side and I know, each of us is better and happier for it. I know how lucky I am and I love to see how happy each of my boys are – in even doing the simplest task around here, we are finding joy.
These smiles tell me, we are doing something right. And I am grateful.
