New Home…New Beginnings…New Memories

But there is room now in my heart for more memories, carved by a letting go that I could find only by coming home to a place I’d never been. ~Karen White~

It’s official. Finally. Closing is completed. I’m now a homeowner once again. I’m beyond grateful to be gifted with this new space, made possible by God and by my daughter and son-in-law. Answered prayers. 🙏


New Beginnings (part 2)

You cannot change the past.
You can only improve on the present.”

The day after arriving here in Pa, it was time to move forward with selling the NC place. I’d decided to wait till the boys and I were out of the home before attempting to sell.

I reached out to a realtor who proceeded to meet my daughter at the house. She assessed my property and took her photos. I trusted her judgement on what we should put it on the market for. I was selling it ‘as is’, and while I had a number in my head, I was also realistic. She suggested almost to the dollar what I had been thinking. Good sign as far as I was concerned.

A few days after signing what needed to be signed, the house went ‘live’. It was late on a Friday afternoon. The amount of activity proved to be exciting and nerve racking… the end of the weekend I had multiple offers.

I accepted one which blessed me with more than I anticipated. Closing would take a few weeks….and the day before Thanksgiving it was all done. I truly had and continue to have much to be thankful and grateful for as 2022 comes to a close.

Closing here on my new place will be any day now….in the meantime, I’m snuggled in, grateful to be home.

Winter cheers

Each day, I live in deep appreciation for so much, because I see, feel, sense, and know life is the most awesome journey. Living each day, moment by moment is God’s Gift to me, to us. ~LM~


I love the changing of the seasons and the colors of the marsh grasses as they start to turn… I miss my soul strolls on the beache of Assateague, but grateful for the memories .
