My last blog was back in May and at that time I was on the fence about selling my house and moving into an apartment.
Well, after a lot of soul-searching and praying, I decided that to sell the house and move into a nice apartment would be good for me.
I looked at many apartment buildings and most of them just didn't have the right "feel" to them. It's hard to explain, but I needed to have a "warm and fuzzy" feeling and I wasn't getting that.
In May, a good friend of mine suggested I look at a particular building although I knew that there are hardly ever any apartments that come up there. But, I called the manager and he said that there would be a two bedroom suite available on July 31. I asked him if I could see it and so I looked at it and he also showed me his and his wife's place and they were beautiful. I really felt right at home. Yep, that "warm and fuzzy" feeling was there.
I applied for the suite and was accepted and I never looked back. I met with my real estate agent, we made a list of things that should be done to spruce up the house, settled on a listing price and in July we put it on the market. July is terrible for real estate sales and I had no showings at all, but so far in August there has been a lot of interest in the place and I know it will be sold soon.
Meanwhile, over the past couple of weeks I have been moving stuff from there to here. Yes, HERE! I am now all moved in. It's a beautiful space in the downtown area within walking distance to everything. It's very quiet and the neighbours I have met so far are fabulous.
I know God listened when I prayed for guidance. I know He (through my friend) pointed me here. He is great! I've been sleeping here now for a week and it so feels like home. I love it. With the indoor parking I know I will really enjoy it during our winter months.
I want to thank all of you for giving me your thoughts about my dilemma back in May (and even earlier really).
Thank you all and have a blessed day!
