there’s a house…

There’s a house.

In Florida.

The first one Peter and I ever owned.

The one we brought our babies homes to.

Back when we never had a thought to what the future had in store.

We had to leave that house to make that future in Georgia. Leaving people we trusted to take care of the place that we’d always think of as “home”.

Then we found the unexpected can always happen.

At a time our lives were thrown in confusion. Uncertainty. Chaos.

Then we found trust didn’t go very far.

While I was in the hospital fighting to come back we were too busy to realize that those people had decided that since I wasn’t calling them each month, they just wouldn’t pay.

It has taken months of acceptance.

Months of getting over the selfish behavior of those people who STILL live in our house.

It isn’t going to be our house very much longer.

I hope the regret of the choice they made eats them up.

But you know what matters?

There’s a house.

In Georgia.

    “Karma–like gravity–is hardly noticed but it’s there.”

    You know what’s important, Anissa, but the situation sucks nonetheless! But home is where the heart is and all five of you are home together in Georgia. That’s all that really counts. But let me say it again: It sucks! And yes, karma has two sides–good and bad.

    You are on the right side! Now go get tomorrow, Anissa, like you always do…

    It sucks that the Florida people took such advantage, but Karma will take care of them. Love the new family photo, holy cow your kids are getting big!

    I’m sorry that someone you trusted did you so dirty. I had that happen to me too here and it sucks but the people who did you dirty did it way worse. Karma. They’ll get what they deserve. Hope you guys are doing great and home is where your family and heart are so wherever they are: you are home.

    What goes around….

    You know what they say.

    And you have the unique perspective to understand the depths of the important things in life. They are wherever the 5 of you are together. That’s a home and it’s call The Mayhews.

    That’s really descipable. Some people have no shame.

    Continue to enjoy your home in Georgia and show them you will not be beaten.

    Oh wow, I had NO idea. People just suck sometimes, don’t they? However, despite living in Florida, I think houses in GA just ROCK.

    Oh, they’ll pay. Eventually. But it seems you’ve already learned one of the lessons we’re all here to learn. Moving on in spite of other people’s influence on us. You’re not letting it influence your happiness, and that’s what matters. Well, along with a house in Georgia.
