When we found our house, we knew that this was the home of our dreams. My husband and I stood inside of the doors with happy smiles, envisioning the sounds of happy children playing, the scurrying of tiny feet as they explored the world around them. It was one of those moments, that is nearly like being offered a glimpse into a crystal ball… we knew this was the one, this was the house we would raise a family in.
Fast forward to present day. Now the kids are growing! There is happy laughter to be heard every day! We hear little feet hitting the floor, running, dancing, playing. We see how fast they have grown in such a short time. That my mind starts to think about what happens as they get older?
We get older too. Someday we will be elderly, God willing we live to see those days! We may have health complications or issues at some point in the future. What happens to this house, the home we love so dearly, at that time?
