Our dear little cottage in Idaho has a new owner. It's sale is
bittersweet. We loved it and it housed so many happy memories
for us. But there is a very happy ending to this tale.
My neighbor Amy has a father who was widowed a few years ago.
He had been living in the home where he and his wife raised their
three daughters. Their children grew up and moved away.
His wife passed away and Don was living all alone in a big house
in Illinois filled with memories but far from family.
Don was retiring from his lifelong calling as a Lutheran Pastor.
It was time for a change.
When we told Amy that we were moving to Texas, she
knew that our sweet cottage would be the perfect spot for
her dad's new beginning.
And her dad agreed.
So today it became official. Don became it's new owner.
I am happy because it's the perfect solution for us all.
So the tears I shed today are ones of joy. Our dear little cottage
will be loved by someone new and our friend Amy will have her
dad living close by.
Sometimes tales do have happy endings.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
