I’m So Done

housesearchWell, I couldn’t throw away the pile of papers I’ve acquired in this home search without documenting it. To read about the process I’ve used in the search click to read “Still Looking.” We numbered on a paper map and drove by at least 50 houses. (I’m not going to count, because I am so done with spending time on this.) And then there were the dozens we made appointments to see the inside of too, but weren’t quite right. Now that we have just what we were looking for, I feel like all of the time was worth it. And I feel very blessed that the Lord has always taken care of us so well. It definitely has not been easy, but I feel like He knew where we will be happy and led us to it. I can’t help but think of my s-i-l Holly and her current situation too. I respect her so much for following a prompting to go to an unknown city and start from scratch. I’m sure it has been difficult, but I know that things will work out for her there too. Hang in there Holly, I’m praying for you!

    I totally understand how you feel, and I am so happy your search is over. The pictures of your new house look incredible, and I am thrilled you found such a wonderful place! We felt the same when we found ours last year, it seemed we would end up looking forever, and nothing was feeling right. Until we stumbled on our house. I have never felt so settled before and it’s a crazy good feeling.

    I have great respect for Holly too. I know it can be hard to go somewhere new but the experience is a great one. I am so happy you found a great place. It is worth the effort even though it can be overwhelming at times. Hopefully someday we will be able to see your house for ourselves with a great family visit.

    Oh you’re so kind. But I’m sure that moving an entire family is much more difficult than just one person. I still can’t believe how many times you guys have moved since you have been married. A actually love the feeling when you can get rid of all of your maps, research notes and papers. It’s so liberating!
