I officially send good-bye to my house yesterday. This house provided me safe harbor when I needed it most. It provided security, peace and happiness to my son and to me. It was perfect for that time in my life. I had great neighbors and enjoyed living in a great town.
I was surprised I didn't feel more sentimental about leaving it, but once we removed all the furniture, dishes, photos...it just became what it was; a house. I realize that my home is where my family is and now that all my "stuff" is out at the farm, that now feels like home.
Time for me to start my fourth phase of my life. "Oh life on the farm is kind of layback..."
