Journal Prompt 25
Tell me about a ‘perfect moment’ you have experienced. Where were you, who was there, what happened, how did you feel? How does it feel remembering this moment?
A perfect moment I have experienced??? Hmmm…..
Probably the day after I closed on this house. The day OF the closing, went pretty smoothly for the most part, until afterwards. I signed a gazillion papers and my signature got worse with each page. Even I was tired of my name by the end of it.
But the big moment you wait for after going through 5 months of waiting for a house to be built and all the details of getting a mortgage, is finally getting the keys in your hands. I got the keys and you would think that would be the perfect moment.
Noooooooo…..the title company gave me the wrong keys! I didn’t realize it until I got to the house, which ended up being a 2 hour drive with the traffic and the rain. So, I had signed my life away and couldn’t get in my house. Not a happy camper at all but I called the title company from the car and she Fedex’d the keys and I had them before 10am the next morning.
The day I came over here and turned the keys and walked in the door was the perfect moment. It felt great. I felt restored after so many years since my first house.
