Life is kinda funny.
I have been feeling really discouraged about the hunt for a house.
I had written a post pretty much complaining about it.
Then after chatting with another sweet blogger last night, she gave me the encouragement I needed.
Instead of looking at all the negatives in the hunt I am going to turn them around and make them positive.
First- the waiting...
Yes with most short sales you have to wait.
But it gives us time.
To not be so hasty.
To keep looking at other houses that may be better.
Second- The issue of cleanliness in said homes.
Most of these houses are trashed.
It will give us an excuse to paint the walls.
Get the carpets cleaned.
And hey if we like a house enough to buy it when it is dirty, we will love it when it is clean!
Third- Homes already being under contract
This is by FAR the most frustrating!
This will let us know that we were not meant to be in that house.
We will trust in God that he will guide us to where we need to be.
Buying a home is a dream.
And we are very fortunate to even be able to do it.
I need to enjoy it.
There I feel much much better!
This is one of the reasons why I love blogging so much!
There are so many fantastic people out there who give me so much inspiration!
