If it looks too good to be true..........

So Babushka's home finally sold!!!!

This is exciting for so many reasons, not the least of which is that is signals another milestone in our lives becoming one. It also means we need to get serious about deciding where we are going to live.

The stress of uncertainty was being felt by both of us. The end result of this was that last week we just turned it over to our higher power to take care of - just have faith.

the perfect situation had seemed to fall into place just a couple days later, with us putting an offer in on a property that was perfect for us. Financing got approved and the offer was full price - this was really going to happen.....

To spare the long details, we felt that the listing agent was not telling the whole story and sure enough. The property title is held by one of those wonderful "we'll help you work with your lender" companies. Needless to say that this is no longer the sure transaction we thought......and all of this is out of our control.

It is frustrating when we do things the right way and situations outside our control have such influence. But such is life.

If this does not work out it simply means it was never supposed to. Yet that does not make it any less disappointing.

But I have the life I used to only dream of with the woman I love. It doesn't get any better than that!!!!!

You've put the outcome in the right hands - just know that if it doesn't come to fruition there is a very good reason! Prayers are with you and Babushka!
