It's All Coming Together (I Hope)

Last week we found out that we had an offer for our townhouse. We have been on the market since the first week of June, and so I was hopefully optimistic. Not happy, really, because so much could still go wrong. Deals fall apart, financing doesn't come through, things just happen in general. But yes, I am definitely hopefully optimistic. The best thing is leaving the house a complete mess when I walk out the door and knowing that it's okay. It's FABULOUS!

My sister put her house on the market at the same time and she also finalized a contract on her house last week. I feel that we have been greatly blessed, and I look to my parents. They have worked every Saturday in the temple for years. They take their assignments seriously and will cut short trips and family get-togethers in order to fulfill their assignment.

At times, this has been a pain. For example, they are the first to leave after Thanksgiving in order to get home. But it has also been a great blessing. I still remember getting the best parking spot ever when we went to The Christmas Carol, something I attribute to them having fabulous guardian angels. And now my sister and I have sold our houses and look forward to great changes. I wonder what my parents will pray for next?

my word verification is "shist" that sounds like you're swearing-have them pray that you find 2 adorable houses close together (Riley told me to ask you again to leave your girls here-the poor girl so wants sisters)

Hmmmm...maybe you could have them pray that our house in NC sells!?! It seems like they are good at praying for that :)
