Home At Last!

Friday, February 27, 2009

Our decision to uproot our lives in Indiana to live close to family in Ohio almost 15 months ago was a perfect decision and we do not regret it for one second. To make that decision though called for us to embrace some uncomfortable living and financial situations for awhile. {Remember, we moved 3 times in one year. It was borderline insanity!}

Finally we have a home of our own that is near our families and a stable job for Mike that he enjoys.

I don't know how to fully explain what all this means to me!

It's a real chance to feel settled for the first time in our almost 5 years of marriage. My heart is pounding with joy! Not too long ago I thought this moment was still years away for us, but here we are today receiving the keys to our beautiful home sweet home.

It is truly the works of God. It's the only way I can explain why all this has unfolded so perfectly. Mike losing his job was God working out a better plan for us.

I am now going to spend the rest of my days soaking in this great feeling of being home.

I had a meeting over there last night, so I drove by your new home to show if off to one of my friends. I didn't realize what a big back yard it had!

I volunteer to babysit while you're moving.

Congratulations! What a great thing to be able to look over the events of the past year and see how God's hand has orchestrated everything to bring you to this point! I'm praying that I'll have that kind of hind-sight once our moving craziness is over too. :)

As you get things set up and decorated the way you want them, you'll have to post pictures.

Congrats again!

Valerie,

We'll be tearing the carpet up today and through the weekend. The wood floors will start to be refinished on Monday. That will take about a week. So hopefully next weekend we'll do the actual move-in! :o)
