Did I ever tell you about those people?
Their Aunt was the one who viewed the home, discussed positives & negatives with these people’s realtor and their Aunt even picked up the key to their house at closing.
This same Aunt flew out to help prep for the move. She boxed up 80% of the home that these people were leaving.
A couple weeks later the brother of these people flew out to their home to help pack up three vehicles and a U-Haul; he then drove one of the vehicles to these people’s new home.
Upon arriving at their new home these people had an entire crew waiting to help unload. The crew that was made up of Aunts, an Uncle, Siblings (including one from the next state over) and a couple Cousins had been busy at these people’s new home.
The furniture and appliances that had been delivered days prior were unboxed, assembled and in place.
These people had their cable and internet installed and ready for action thanks to their Aunt who met the technician at their home the day before. On top of everything else their Aunt had taken care of, she also painted the playroom and one of the bathrooms before these people arrived on moving day.
The same Aunt who had already done so much was the one who arranged for the crew of family to assemble and unload. She and her sister (another Aunt) hired professional house cleaners to ensure these people’s new home was move-in ready. Together the Aunts lined the cabinets and prepared a meal for all involved. These people’s sweet cousin even made Macaroni-n-Cheese for her favorite toddler cousin.
These people had it made. They still have it made.
These people are part of the greatest family. One who serves one another without question and one who loves unconditionally. We are these people.
It was a year ago today that my brother helped move us six hours away and into a home that was made possible by my Aunt & family.
Since the day my husband met my family he has shared nothing but admiration for the unconditional love that does not waiver in my family. I will not argue his high opinion of my family. The man is right.
I am blessed. We are blessed. And we are incredibly grateful to know and feel an abundance of unconditional love, constant grace and unlimited hugs.
If it weren’t for the way they love, I would be ashamed to even tell you about these people. But those people in my family… they didn’t do any of it because it was expected or even requested. Those people did it because of their love for these people.
