So, we did it. Closed on the 22nd of November.
Finally, the negotiating and haggling is over. We’re in. There are a whole new set of financial issues, of course, but as I stood in the empty house after the settlement, the larger spiritual consequences dawned on me. It is in this house where my child(ren) will be raised, where they will grow up, and where my wife and I will solidify our marriage. It is more than a house, it will be a home.
As the contractor’s three weeks of work begin, we are beginning to see the slow transformation of this house from the home of another to ours.
Daunting, yes. Anxiety-ridden…you bet. Exciting…Absolutely!
