Chasing Contentment

Thursday, June 22

Yay! The dealership received the part, and we should be on our way in a few hours. It feels like it's been forever in this limbo.

We're all really ready to get to our new home and be surrounded by our own things. I know there's a good case against materialism in our society, but I also see such value in having familiar things around us. It gives us comfort.

With any luck, we'll be in our new home tomorrow evening, and we'll spend the weekend unpacking. Mike's family will be with us, and we are so grateful to them for all of their support and assistance.

And we're humbled by Mandy and Josh's generosity. We've enjoyed our time with them these last few days, despite the difficulties surrounding this time. They are so precious to us.

Sometimes it's the hard times that are remembered with the most fondness (in terms of who we remember as our friends)
