The Folks

This is a good picture of my parents, we call "The Folk's".They are so happy that they don't have to leave their house that almost sold. I guess the old saying is true, You don't know what you got til it's almost gone. They have a new appreciation for their home like never before. My dad thought he wasn't able to do things around the house anymore and that's one reason why he was so anxious to sell it. He thought they needed to move in Assisted Living, but after the deal fell through on the house last week, he got his leaf blower out and cleaned off his driveway, got his hammer out and started hanging things on walls and just had a different outlook. My mom unpacked all her treasures that she loves to look at and placed them back where they belong. I thank God for being with all of us last week during this trying time and we are all so happy at the outcome. There's No Place Like Home!

Awwww it was just meant to be. They need to live in there house longer. That's great to hear.

So many memories are in a house, because it is not just a house, it's home. It's sad when you sell it to strangers. The house I lived in with my Grandparents most of my growing up years was sold after my Nanny died. Now, when I go "home" to Pennsylvania the most I can do is drive past it. But, we have the memories. I'm glad your parents get to enjoy their home for what I hope is many, many more years.

That really is a gift they've been given to be shown how much they really love their home.
