We lined up tables filled with it, spread it on the ground, surrounded a large tree with full boxes filled with it, put it on plywood tables made with sawhorses, leaned it against buildings, leaned it against fences. The 10x10x5 pile you see above is all that is left of it...our "stuff".
Saturday and Sunday, we had our garage sale and everything went that had not been spoken for by family and friends. We are having a local church pick up the pile you see above
Maybe you have picked up on a couple of hints I have slipped in some recent posts. We are moving. We like to say we are becoming permanent RV'rs.
Two years ago, this month, we knew we would be making changes. We have had a family construction business for over 25 yrs. and have weathered many ups and downs in the economy. But this time it is different and change we must.
Mr. SS has been working off and on out of town for over a year.
Our family is here, so we will set up our fifth wheel on my son's property. We also have a motor home that my husband and son have been staying in while working out of town. I will continue to go with him when I can.
Our house sold very quickly because it was a "short" sale. Without going into a lot of detail, just let me say that even though we basically gave it away, we are feeling really good about the whole thing.
We didn't rush into this and prayed for a long time before making this decision.
The Lord has laid plans out for us every step of our married life and we have faith this is no different.
We are trusting in him to turn this to the good for our family.
I still have pictures of my little girls room and will get it on Pink Saturday soon. Also still have my red bathroom to show you.
I am already working on a place to sew and to store all the "stuff" I need for that in both our "mobil homes" and I'm looking forward to more time to spend with my grandkids.
Today, I am working on making the coolest diaper bag and in between packing spurts, I have a costume to make for my granddaughter for a play.
God is good!!
Life is good!!
