We are moving. In two weeks we are leaving Minnesota. To where? Don't worry, I will tell you soon...
My job the last few days has been to sell the things we won't be taking with us. Our kitchen table... Our bookcases. Even our books on the bookcases. Did you know that if you type in a book's isbn number on BookScouter.com, you can find the best buyer for that book? Once you select your buyer, you're even given a shipping label to print off for free shipping. It's really the coolest thing. The most challenging part is finding the perfect-sized box.
We were able to make a little money selling many of our books, and the others we simply donated to the library. I love books, but they are not an easy item to move so I am thankful to have them passed on to the next person.
It is unbelievably hard saying goodbye to some things. We're downsizing with the intent of starting fresh. I'm working on letting go of sentimental feelings and opening my heart to whatever it is that God has in store for us.
Of course the toughest goodbyes are yet to come. I am going to miss my family. Nevertheless, it is time to spread our wings...
If you think of me, please say a prayer for strength and courage to press forward.
