I haven’t participated in Five Minute Friday in weeks – I haven’t even peeked into the Twitter party or the Facebook group page – we have been very, very busy moving. This morning I stalked Kate and saw that she said, “Done,” last night. NOW, this word I can relate to…
Stick a fork in us because we are…
I saw this word and said to myself I can certainly write five minutes on this word because we are DONE!
Moving out of our home of 30 years was a two-month long process. We stepped out in faith on June 1 and signed a lease for a downtown flat in Statesville NC about one block from our daughter’s home – we were under contract and it looked promising so we just ventured out and trusted the Lord to bring it all to fruition.
We were “done.” Our old 1950 farmhouse and 14+ acres was getting too much for us. One day my hubs and I looked at one another and said, “I’m tired.” Our can-do wasn’t broken but our want-to was! Does that make sense?
The month of June was a walk on eggshells. Appraisals, inspections, loan companies, the V.A. and so much more. With each day came a new wall to climb or challenge to overcome but on June 29th we officially were DONE. 172 became the dream of another couple, young and ambitious. They will take the property to the next level, until they are done.
Isn’t it an interesting word, this word done?
My five minutes are up and I submit my essay to the lovely folks in the Five Minute Friday community. I’m so glad I’m not done with them, nor them with me.
