It’s probably worth mentioning that both of our daughters were not living in California any longer. Lily had moved to Denver with Christian, her boyfriend and Paige was married to Drew and living in Florida for his Air Force special ops training.
One of the hardest parts of this whole decision was leaving family and friends and the decision to sell our home of 22 years. We loved that home and put in a lot of love and sweat into its care and feeding. We raised two wonderful daughters in that home and it was hard saying goodby to those memories.
Until you walk through this door you don’t really realize it but the memories are just that and the vessel of the house doesn’t hold those memories. The good times, sad times and everything in between are held in your heart and mind and its the people that keep that alive, not the house or the stuff.
The stuff of life is just that, a silly word that means nothing. I know, we packed a lot of stuff into boxes.
More on stuff later…
