If you have read this blog for any period of time, or know me in person, then you know that my Mom passed away last October. Tomorrow I am traveling back to Ohio with my sister and her kids to clean out my Mom’s house. I am absolutely dreading it. I know it needs to be done and there will never be a “good” time to do it, but I just don’t want to face it.
We have to go through and determine what to do with every single thing in her house. We have to decide what it worth keeping, what to sell and what is just trash. Almost everything in the house has a memory tied to it since we lived in that house since I was four years old. Mom’s room is just the way it was when she last stayed in it. When you open her closet it smells like her and there is still a layer of powder on the shelf from the last time she got ready there.
If you have a moment would you please pray for me and my family as we prepare emotionally and physically to go through the work of emptying a lifetime of belongings from what used to be our home? Our goal is to get all the work done in the three days that I am there and be able to put it up for sale soon after.
