For years I thought about this day.
I know I have been non-existent, but been so very busy. Our house sold after being on the market for 3 1/2 weeks. I feel so very blessed that it has sold and so quickly in this terrible economy. However, I can't help but feel so bittersweet when I see this home (not just a house) empty. Empty........
So many memories made here, so many firsts. First visit from Santa, first steps were taken here,first words were said here. First place to realize that one of my sons was not developing at the same rate as his twin and to understand why. First place to overcome the sadness and embrace his diagnosis and realize it was a blessing to us all. First place we took the training wheels off. First visit from the tooth fairy. First place to swing on a swing set, play in the sand and stay outside from dawn till dusk in the summer. First place to play in the neighborhood and first place to be shunned when someone else had "cooler" toys. First place to bring home baby sister. First place that our love has grown beyond what I ever imagined.
It's hard for me to say goodbye. But I know that there are many more memories to be made. Please come with us for the ride, will you?
