A Match Made In Heaven?




Yesterday, June 6th, was the 1-year anniversary of Wild Bill's doctor telling us Bill had, at best, 8 to 12 months to live. 

Bill is doing really well with the new chemo treatment, and he has happily traded his full head of hair for what we're hoping is a much brighter future than the doctor predicted! Every day now is one more day we never thought we'd have.

And today, June 7th, is the 1-year anniversary of my mother-in-law Jessie's passing. If you were a reader last year, you may remember Jessie died the day after learning her only child had so little time to live! 

I still think Jessie is our angel up in Heaven watching over us and maybe pulling a few strings for us now and then! Read on and see what you think...

Last Saturday night I said a prayer for the house to find a buyer to love her and release us to move forward to a new future. 

Sunday afternoon our realtor brought us a good offer for our house contingent on the sale of the buyer's local farm. 



I knew the buyer was a "kindred soul" when the offer included a request that the four counter stools and the rolling center island be left as part of the contract! 

I was happy to do that as I'm ready to release the past and embrace the future.




 On Monday, the buyer's farm went up for sale. 

On Tuesday, they accepted an offer contingent upon the completion of a pending sale of their buyer's home...So we are lined up like Dominos!

We had the required inspections on Wednesday (termite inspection) and Thursday (home inspection), and now we are waiting for the "punch" list from the home inspector's report so we can get any items he noted completed.

Please wish us all luck -- and 3 speedy closings -- and then we'll all be on our way to a new life.



Thanks for dropping by!

    1. Thank you Joy! We got to met our buyers on Thursday after the home inspection, and they are buying a lot of our furniture so we will be able to move very quickly if all goes well.

  2. The sale of your house is great news and I pray that your husband continues to do well. Do you have any idea where you will be moving?

    1. La Vie, we've been looking in the small towns that ring around the Nashville area or maybe the northern Mississippi area. We are selling or giving away most of our furniture, and have packed up what we plan to keep and have been putting it into 2 storage units here until we know for sure where we will end up. An apartment for 6 months will let us have some time to look around and find the best treatment for Bill, and that's where we'll settle.

    1. Thank you Mama! The buyer's are perfect for our house as it was perfect for us when we bought it. With the passing of Bill's parents last June and November, we no longer have the need to stay in our town to be with them. We are ready for a last adventure!

  6. Rivercrest Cottage,
    Placing your request on my daily prayer list!
    I, too, believe that angels grieve and that they are looking down on us from up above.
    You and Wild Bill embrace the future and savor every moment!
