Change always seem to bring a mixture of emotions.
The bigger the change, the deeper the emotion.
As I mentioned in my last post, we are in the middle of selling our home.
Selling a house is easy, selling your home is a whole different kettle of fish!!
Moving is bittersweet.
When you actually build your own home, it is built with blood, sweat, and tears.
Tears of joy….
all of my children are now married, and my family has grown.
Tears of sorrow….
we have lost loved ones
and a beloved dog.
A lot of sweat!!
Creating a home and gardens out of what was once a bare field, is a lot of work!! I am so thankful that I have a husband who is able to (in his own words) take a pile of lumber and turn it into a house!
We have gone from ‘sticks with leaves’…..to actual trees!!
Grown an abundance of vegetables to eat, preserve and share.
So what makes a house a home, and then back to a house?
Body, soul and spirit summed up in one word.
So while I pack and reflect on the memories captured while residing here….
it’s just a house!
