Happy Doors



I have some amazing news...we have a contract on our house!! The potential buyers came back with a great offer, more than we had hoped. And, they're willing to give us the time we need to move, given that the sellers of the house we are purchasing won't be out until the end of July. Thank you, God! Also, thanks to all of you who said prayers as well. All things happen for a reason and we are truly blessed to have received such an incredible outcome.

On a related note, the house we are buying features double front doors that are painted yellow. At first I wasn't sure that I liked them, but they've really grown on me. They remind me of the many colorful doors we saw while in Dublin. I call them the "happy doors," because they are such a cheerful color. I'm looking forward to welcoming people into our new home through those happy doors.

Have a great Thursday, everyone!
