The only truly smart move we made was unpacking as we brought the boxes into the new house. We used totes and laundry baskets as carriers and when they hit the new floor, I was busy putting the belongings where I thought they should go.
We are very blessed to have a beautiful, new home that has plenty of room for our happy family. With most blessings comes a challenge, and a house is just like that.
You may still have a lot of work to do for your blessings, but don’t lose sight of the fact that you have been blessed. If your blessing is a newborn baby, don’t despair over the late nights; enjoy the fact that you’ve been blessed with that sweet bundle. If your blessing is a new job that seems to take over your life, enjoy the newness until you learn the ropes. It will get easier as time goes on.
And if your blessing is a new home, know that it will never be completely finished, but it’s the lives of the people inside of its walls that truly matter.
