Preparing to Close

last day before the closing
scurrying to accomplish
what needs to be completed

tidying rooms to sparkle
leaving house keys for buyers
penning a warn welcome note

saying goodbys to our home
via current photographs
of memorable events

38 years of memories are tucked inside.
I took this photo to remember all the social events with dear friends and family that took place here.

I am ready to let go and begin a new life chapter!

  1. It’s so hard to move on when you’ve made so many memories in a place, but I know you’ve packed and moved the treasures and will write a new story in your new home.

    1. Glenda, one more day on Long Island. Then, I become a Virginian but deep inside I will not forget the New York memories. Thanks for joining me and my thoughts on moving.

  2. It's a lovely story of completion and moving on to new things and changes!

  3. Carol, one book is finished and another is about to begin. Memories of the old will mingle with the anticipation of the new.
