As fun as it would have been to try and show our house with four boys and two dogs we thought it might be just a bit simpler if we got the heck out of dodge. So, we've been rushing around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to get this beauty ready to put on the market.
I've always thought I didn't want to be one of those people that waits to fix everything up until they are going to sell instead of enjoying it themselves, but reality often trumps such aspirational thoughts.
We are super excited about the job, and all that waits for us in Waco (my family, lifelong friends and all a smaller town has to offer!), but we are equally sad to be leaving everything we love here (our family, lifelong friends, all that big-D has to offer)!! Clearly it is bitter-sweet. Thankfully, we know that friends are friends forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome never ends...What? sometimes the '90s Michael W. just says it best. ;) We are happy that we'll just be a couple of hours away and when we need a Dallas fix we can make it happen.
And while I am letting sappy songs do the talking I can't help but hum a little...if these old walls, If these old walls could speak, of things that they remember well, stories and faces dearly held, a couple in love living week to week, rooms full of laughter, if these walls could speak...I know a house is just a house and moths and rust will soon destroy and all that, but this particular house is where I brought home four precious babies and where we were reminded repeatedly that loves grows best in little houses, so it will always have a little piece of my heart.
And it could have a piece of yours too for the low price of just...JK. But seriously.
