The past few months have been such a whirlwind for my family. As many of you know, we sold our first house and purchased a new construction. Everything seemed fine on the outside to anyone I had told my plan to but on the inside, I was troubled. You see letting go of the past and moving on was so incredibly hard for me. Today, I am sharing my Well Yes! Moment with you all.
Three years ago this December my father passed away. It was such a hard and devastating loss because he was so young and it was so unexpected. It turns out my father died of a heart aneurysm that burst from heart disease complications. There was virtually nothing any doctor could have done to save him, and he died suddenly in his sleep.
There is not a day that goes by that I do not miss my father. He was our rock and such an important part of our family. Even my children cry for their Vavo often and wonder what things would have been like.
Being such a sentimental person, my father’s death was holding me back. You see, my father spent hours helping me remodel my first home. He planted tons of trees in my yard and surprised me with two special evergreens because he knew how much I yearned for those plants. Everywhere I looked in that home I saw my father. It was both a comfort and a struggle.
The truth is, as my family grew, our tiny first home no longer fit our needs. I loved that home so much and the memories that came with it, but in my heart, I knew things had to change. I had to move on…I had to say YES.
After several months of on again, off again house discussions with my husband I went to bed one night and felt a renewed sense of hope, peace, and calm over the house situation. Something was telling me in my heart to do it…I need to say YES. I will sell this home and move on.
In the middle of June of this year, my brave YES moment was putting my home on the market, and opening the doors to a new chapter of my family’s life. With the amazing support of my awesome husband Jared, we successfully sold our home, and bought our dream home.
And, guess what? This home borders a dairy farm in the country. A home like this was my father’s dream so a sense of extra peace and fulfillment came over me as I turned the key to a new chapter of my life by saying YES.
Truthfully, I couldn’t have done it without my husband Jared. He was my rock, my support, and my constant reminder of how my father would have supported my move fully.
Now that I reflect back on the past three months, I sit here with some hot Well Yes!® Soup from Campbell’s. My father LOVED soup so much, so it is so tastefully calming to enjoy a delicious crock of Tomato Carrot Bisque as I reflect on life.
