Hello Prim Pals, Hoping you are all well. The sun shined brightly in my neck of the woods today. All the evening storms passed us by, and I had lunch with my girls. So I am a thankful lady. And to make the day even better, I decided to visit with you in the evening.
Why do I want to move you might be wondering. Well first bear with me as I give you a little history as to why we ended up living where we do. Mr. P and I were in our 20's when we decided to build our home here on this little hill. We both were young but had given the idea much thought. Not a hasty decision. We built our dream home on the land where my parent's old homeplace once sat. My parents had built across the street. A family member lived next door and the house directly behind us was occupied by a wonderful couple around my parent's age. Swamp land was on the remaining side and there a house could not be built. Couldn't have ask for better neighbors. We knew as my parents grew older , we could care for them and stay in our home. Mr. P's parents lived a mile or so away, so this would work out great in years to come.
Fast forward 34 years, and the young couple who so thought we had our lives all planned out,,,,well we have found out there were many disappointments to be had. Our family members who lived next door sold many years ago. The older couple who was leaving their home to a son who would have been a wonderful owner.... the son passed away years before the parents from a massive heart attack. Both these properties became rental. Now don't get me wrong, I know some wonderful people who rent, actually some of my own family, but we have yet to get good neighbors. Both families that occupy the houses have stolen from us. Our plans were to be here until my parents passed away, sell both houses and we would move out to the country with land for the Mister. Well, my Dad dies, years later Mother goes to a nursing home, and because of her need to control , the house had to be sold.
