Moving Day

Saturday was moving day. My Mom and Dad brought the horse trailer and several friends brought their pick-ups. We are truly blessed to have so many friends willing to help. We moved everything into the garage at the new house. It took us a few hours, we were finished by early afternoon. Andrew and I spent the rest of the day and most of Sunday picking up the miscellaneous things that were not boxed up and cleaning. Today were are filled with nervous excitement and sadness. We take possession of our new house on Tuesday, but we are still awaiting the closing process for both homes. I will feel much better when all the papers have been signed. We are also feeling some sadness about leaving Marston. We loved our house and our neighborhood. But realize that a chapter in our lives have ended, and a new one has begun.

The piano is being moved out. My dad supervises; always a good job for him.
The garage, full to the roof. Amazing the collection of things we own.

My gratitude list.
Great friends with strong arms and backs and Pick-up trucks.
My parents who are always willing to help
A God who provides for all our needs.

Today, those are my top 3!
