In Less than Two Weeks

Well, things have changed in a mighty way over the past month.

We put our house up for sale the Monday after Easter.  Two and a half weeks later, this is what our real estate sign looked like:


Yes, that says Contract Pending - as of May 13

And now, with all the inspections and appraisals done and a closing date set for June 16, this is what my house looks like:


In less than two weeks, we will be moving north to Greenville, SC.

We love Greenville and I've been excited about the move.  We found a wonderful townhouse that we will lease for a year until we get to know the area, and then after that we hope to buy our forever home.  We will be living within walking distance of the beautiful downtown area, and we won't have a lawn to mow or a pool to tend to.  In other words, my hub and I will finally have time for hobbies, and each other.   

But, I find myself very sad today.  There are things happening in the life of someone I love and it is causing me such distress.  I am leaning heavily on my faith, and praying for the peace that has been in my heart and mind until this point to return.  It's just a situation that has blindsided me and, on top of the stress of a move, is hard to take. 

So, those of you who pray, please say one for me if you don't mind.  Thanks :)
