The paperwork is done. The lawyer has everything he needs to close the sale. Now the work...the real work...commences. We have set a goal of listing this house in the next three weeks. We have mountains of sorting to do, because precious little will be moving with us to our new home.
Our children are happy that we will be sorting through and discarding. This means less for them to do down the road. I have often heard said that the first half of your life is spent accumulating things and the last half of your life is spent getting rid of those things. How true!
When I contemplate the process of packing and sorting and cleaning, I develop palpitations. Last night when I had a few minutes to myself, I gave myself a little pep talk. "Worrying," I told myself, "will get you nowhere. So far, things have gone smoother than anyone has expected, and there is every reason to believe that this trend should continue. Test the theories. Think positively. Expect the best and that is what will come into your life. Leave the rest to a Higher Power."
So...that is my intention. I will work on my attitude as I work on this home... All is well...and this shall be my focus...
