Last weekend, on April 10th to be specific, we received an offer to purchase our house in Indiana. Of course, it is not sold until it passes inspection and goes to closing, but the prospect of uniting our family again is much better than it was a week ago. It’s hard to imagine, but the kids and I have been here in NC for four months. That’s a long time to be apart. That’s alot of pizza and corn dogs for the kids’ dinner.
There is no doubt that there was some divine intervention in the process. After three-plus months of no offers, my wife decided to look to a higher power. So, on Friday, she buried a statue of St. Joseph — Patron Saint of Home Sales — in the backyard and we both asked St. Joseph to intervene with the big guy for us. On Saturday, a couple came to see the house. On Sunday, they came back and made an offer. We countered, they countered, we countered again, and we settled on that.
Thanks be to St. Joseph!
