Weeks End

Thank-you all for your concerns on how I have been feeling lately. I'm doing fine now, and relieved to be feeling better. It's been a long difficult week, we are preparing our family homestead for sale, and got it put on the market yesterday. Now comes the task of getting it in shape for showings. Sorting through 52 years of belongings, purging the needed, throw aways, and garage sale items, dealing with emotions, it's been a haul. It's amazing how much is accumulated over the years. My sisters, Mother, and myself are faring with it all, it's hard on Mom though, we know to be patient and help her through. It looks so strange to pull up to the house and see the Century 21 post sign in the front yard. But we all know it's for the best, and will be easier to do this now than later. Working on the upstairs is our priority for tomorrow, then we'll be all set for right now. The basement and garage are after that. So say a prayer, o.k.? We need all the help we can get, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! Thanks!

I'll be thinking about you in the cleaning out and selling the family home. I've had three to clean out along with my sister. G-aunt's when she died, grandmother's and mom's when each of them had to move into a home.

There will be a lot of tears and laughter...floods of memories!

My sister and I threw out tons of stuff, divided up tons of stuff. I still have boxes in attic and closets of odds and ends I brought home to go through and four years later yet to do. Four years ago Mom moved into assistant living home...dementia. Year ago yesterday we lost her the last time. First time when she no longer knew us and Jan 30, 2008 when her body died.

Anyway, just wanted you to know, I'll have you in my thoughts and prayers as one who has been there and done it...God Bless
