7 YEARS...

We have moved a few boxes into storage and will try to move as many as possible before Saturday. Hopefully all we will have to move on Saturday is our furniture. Then I will need to go through and tidy up the place. We will be staying with my Mom for awhile until we can get back on our feet or until school let's out. Se lives in the same school district so we won't have to change Eleni's school. 

If I had to sum up the last 7 years I would say they have been a blast. Like all families we have had our ups and downs but the good memories will always out weigh the bad. When I close that door for the last time I will be sad but in my heart I will always remember the happy times.

I have spent a lot of time thinking and reminiscing this week. I can't help but think back to the day we moved in it was 4th of July 2002. This house was twice the size of the little rancher we  just moved out. I thought will I ever be able to fill this huge house. We not only filled 1520 with stuff but also a lot of laughs, fun, and memories. As I sit and look around at our lives all boxed up I wonder where we will call home next.

I want to thank all of you who have commented on  my blog. You will never know how much your kind words have meant to me. You have been there all the way and I hope you will continue to stop by as I begin a new journey.

Donna,

We signed over the house on Monday. It was a happy/sad moment for us both. I hope and pray you can get back on your feet soon and can start a new adventure! *hugs*

Hi Donna,
I agree with what Linda said...you see the good, no matter what...
I'm pretty sure that is what HE wants us (all) to do...see the GOOD-no matter how difficult things get-and trust that they will not stay this way-!
I just know things will be ok for you and the fam...I just know it!! Hang in there girl...

I love your outlook Donna! I think you have it right when you wonder what place you will call home next....because you know home is where your family is....that's the most important and you have that! I have no doubt that we will be reading in the future about what God has done for you! I think there are good things in store for you!

Hugs and prayers,
