That quote was written by Phillip Moffitt.
Our spur of the moment trip back to Michigan last weekend resulted in us purchasing our new home.
We saw about 10 homes, mostly from the list we had established through the internet, and this was our top pick. Actually, we thought a different house would work as we saw it on our computer screen and it just wasn't the right fit for our family in the end.
In the quiet recesses of both our brains sat this home and we are blessed to have put an offer on it and the owner accept. Of course there was negotiating involved, but there always is.
Our move date is March 13th. It is all happening very quickly and the emotional roller coaster that inherently goes with an international move has started rolling. There will be ups (read: new exciting home and seeing our old church family) and downs (read: new amazing friends and current church family) that I know lengthy conversations via e-mail with Joyce will definitely come into play. Joyce lived in England and fairly recently repatriated back to the U.S. and knows exactly what all of this means. If you haven't read her blog, you should and I know you will enjoy it as much as I do.
