Closure and Thanks
I think this is my month for closure and thanks. Saying good-bye to some people, places and things. This past Friday was a very big day for me. We, my five siblings and I, finally after three and one half years, closed my mother’s estate. It is such a relief, you have no idea. I thank my mother for all she has given me in this world. She was the most wonderful, loving, non-judgemental person I have ever met. I am so fortunate to been able to call her my mother.
This week, my daughters, husband and I are in Vermont for one last holiday before we are scheduled to close on our house here next Wednesday. It is a bitter-sweet closing leaving and giving up “our base” in Vermont near so many dear friends. But I know, many of our friends here, will be friends for life. I am thankful for them. Also, I am grateful and thankful to have found a buyer this time of year, and in this real estate market. We will now be able to begin our search for a new home in the Portland, Maine area where my husband is employed. Yes, bitter-sweet.
We will spend the Thanksgiving holiday with my husband’s family. And hopefully, spend lots of time with our friends during the week while we are here. Then we will load all the belongings we will need for the next few months into our cars. The movers will come next week and take the rest of our belongings to be stored until we have secured a home on the other end. This is a beautiful home with a couple of cozy spots I will miss. I thought I would share them with you.
So this week, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, I raise a toast to those people we have been blessed to know along this road we have travelled. I also celebrate the excitement of what’s ahead and those people we have yet to meet. Until next time… Have a wonderful holiday with your family and friends.
Lots of love,
