dust to dust

A few years ago we received what we considered to be a gift. We had been wanting a cabin on the water at the lake, and a friend told us about one near him that was going up for auction. We were the only bidders, and just like that the cabin became ours.

Several events and situations prevented us from closing on the house for about six months, even though we had possession of it. Many, many things needed to be done to make the house clean, updated, and comfortable, but we were hesitant to spend money on it until we had the deed in hand.

So we would go there and explore, fiddle, and dream. And I would run the vacuum every visit. Because there was little else we could do. And sure enough, the cabin always looked better after I did.

Now we are selling the cabin. There are many reasons why this is what we need to do, although it is also a little sad. But we know this is the right thing to do.

And we are thankful for the good times we have had there, and for the people who have helped us transform the way it looks, and for the family and friends that we have spent time with at the cabin through the years.

Today we cleaned it for the last time (I hope) and I found myself running the vacuum again for the finishing touch. Because there was little else left to do. And sure enough, the cabin looked better after I did.
