Saying Good-bye

Thank you all for your prayers, encouragement and birthday wishes-it really means a lot to have y'all as my blogger family! I'm feeling somewhat better today...packed our last trailer full of stuff from our old house (yes, another trailer!!!) and Ella said "Bye-Bye" to the house for the last time. Sniff, sniff, boo hoo. But of course, she said it happily, without a care in the world. I got our neighbor to take some pics of us in front of our house. God has graciously allowed me to realize that even though I will miss it dearly, it is time to let go. And by His grace, no looking back and no more questioning. We'll go back one more night next Sunday (closing Monday morning) but Ella won't go w/us. Somehow I don't think a 2 year old will sit quietly in a lawyer's office while we sign a million papers.

So, she swam in her pool for one last time, swung in her swing one last time...but she has many firsts to start here, so all is well.

I am indeed blessed and as always, God is good.

These pictures are so precious, and the music made me a little misty-eyed :) So many happy memories here. Glad you got to go back and take these last pictures. I'm happy for y'all selling your house but I'll miss your little house too! I think we had a couple of firsts there as well (my wedding shower, Jeff and I visiting while we were engaged...) God is good though and you have many adventures ahead! Love you.

Precious pictures. I love the flowers behind your ears! How sweet of her to pick them for you guys! Such a cutie.

Glad you got music to your blog. Sorry I did not have a chance to email you back. Love the song and WISH I could play like that!

Love the pictures, and know you will miss your first home together. Hope you're settling in the rental house.
Hope to see you soon, and so glad you're blogging again.

Hey Laura,
It was good talking with you today. I will be praying for those items we talked about. I loved seeing the pictures. Ella is getting big.
