House for Sale

It has been one week since our house went on the market. A crazy, stressful time but totally worth it. I'll spare you from all of the details of why we are moving, but 50% is for a fresh start for us and 50% is for the girls' schools and mixed into the two is less driving time for work.

I want to share with you one of my favorite bloggers and a post of hers from last week. Sarah from Clover Lane posted about a Lesson Learned. I've been taught this many times in my life already, but I had a refresher last May. I thought that friends of ours had the perfect life - but that facade came crashing down at the same time that mine did. I am thankful that God scooped me up (once again) and helped me start to heal from my wounds. And it was nice of Him to surround me with real, true friends whose hearts are full. So read Sarah's post and enjoy - she reminds me of many of my dear friends. And hold those you love tight and be thankful for all the blessings you've been given.

What great words, Amy. Life put my family and I to the test last year too. Through a recommitment to Him and prayer, we're getting through it.

I'm so excited for you and your family to have a fresh start with a new home!

i know it's so stressful to have your house on the market! if you ever need a place to 'retreat' to during a showing, please come over! kids can play & make a mess & we can just hang out. seriously anytime... just show up. if i'm not home, call me & i'll give you the code to the back door!
loved that post from clover lane- i'll have to add her to my reader! isn't it funny/sad how we want what everyone else has? especially when we don't know what they actually have...
love you!
