Today was the day, I sold my Mother's house. The knot in my stomach is huge. This house was never MY house. I never lived there. I have a feeling like I've done something terribly wrong, and yes, I can never un-sell it. Mom has no idea what I did today.
A new couple is moving in. It is now their turn to sit on the porch and watch the humming birds fighting over the bee-balm plants. They will watch the fawns being birthed in the field. They will pick the blueberries in July and the strawberries in June. They will get their car stuck on the icy driveway next January. Will they ever love this old blue house as much as my Mother did?
I signed my name a hundred times today. It was all a blur. I came out of the meeting without the keys and with a check. I guess that's all I can ask for.
