The Eagle has landed

After 22, almost 23 years Mom decided it was time to leave the condo and head to a retirement residence nearer family.  The condo went on the market, the applications for the residence were accepted, the movers were booked, and in my Mom’s words “that all happened rather quickly!”  Yes, indeed it did. What a great job Mom did getting herself ready and getting to the day of the move.

I don’t often make a reference to a business or make a recommendation but in this case, I think it is fair to say that “Two Men and a Truck” were gracious, careful, kind, accommodating and reasonable in cost.  It turned out to be a tiresome but rewarding day.

By the time the move day was over, we had gone from the chasos of a condo being packed and moved to the residence with furniture set up, bedroom ready for the evening and probably 70% of things in their place.

It is great to have her closer and even last evening we were able to just “pop over”!  It was a treat. So now a new chapter begins.

As we were getting ready to leave the condo, we paused for prayer and I thanked God for the way He has blessed my Mom, and through her, us as a family.  I am constantly surprised by the way in which God provides despite our humanity, but then Jesus came in human flesh to demonstrate his great love. That love has accompanied my Mom all these years.
