Have you met my friend, Kim, the stager?

We've had numerous showings on the house in just one week.  All of the realtors say our house has the "wow" factor and looks fabulous!  Although I would like to take credit for the great shape our house is in, I cannot.  My dear friend Kim came over for one solid week and worked hard - really hard - to get our house not only packed by staged to sell.  She did a fantastic job and the house looks better today than has in the eight years we've lived here.  Thank you, Kimmie, for giving me a home makeover.  If you want her professional expertise for yourself, you can reach her at or  She is well worth the investment :-)

Tell It Like It Is

Driving home tonight it hit me that we are really moving to California and I really have to say goodbye to one of my dearest friends and my mom.  So, right now I am overwhelmed with a sense of sadness.  

I know that moving to California is God's plan for us.  I know that it will be a great time for Michael and I as a couple and for our family.  I know Carson and Calleigh will come to love being so close to the beach, Disneyland, and the mountains.  I know that God will take care of us.  I know it will be good.

But right now it hurts.  And I am so terribly sad.

That is where I am and how it is in my world tonight.  The song I keep singing is by Brooke Fraser, Shadow Feet.  It goes like this:
Walking, stumbling
On these shadow feet
Toward home, a land that I've never seen
I am changing
Less and less asleep
Made of different stuff than when I began
And I have sensed it all along
Fast approaching is the day
When the world has fallen out from under me
I'll be found in You, still standing
When the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
When time and space are through
I'll be found in You
