Almost exactly two years after it was first put on the market, Gunny and Dillys’ house in the city they used to live in 16 hours away has sold! The closing was Friday. Thank you, God.
They can now move on with their lives. As Dilly told me several months ago, “We can’t totally live here until we sell that house. We still have ‘one foot’ there!”
So, now, Dilly, Gunny, their two teenagers and their two Great Dane dogs, who have all lived “like a can of sardines” in a very small apartment for what seems like a verrrry long time, can finally decide where they want to live permanently in their new city.
As with most challenging events in the lives of those we love, it was hard to see them go through the long wait for that house to sell. But they have actually been pretty happy in their cramped apartment, and have said that they are coming away from this experience with a very different outlook on what is required for happiness!
It’s wonderful that they are taking away from this experience some great memories and life-lessons learned, but that doesn’t stop any of us from being very, very relieved that the house has finally sold.
Thank you, God, for answered prayer.
