    My son is really serious about buying my MIL's house.  Especially since we have lowered the price.  He has found a roommate to help with cost, but also figured out the costs so he knows he could pay for it without a room mate.  I can't say how happy this makes me.   Not only will it take the pressure off from the lawyer it means the house will stay in the family.   Tomorrow he is going to see the bank person about getting a loan.  We will talk to the lawyer.  Plus I can call my BIL and tell him he has to move ASAP as the house is sold.  My heart is happy.  My mood is happy.

    Lately I realized I have been happy again.  I basically am a happy person.   I was so sad about my MIL and still am, but with my beliefs am happy she is in such a great place.  I am happy she didn't suffer much.  I am happy some day I will see her again.  It is good for me to be happy.  The joy of the good days. 

    You need bad days so you appreciate the good days more.  You know!  And I do.  Appreciate them.  Enjoy each and every day.  Maybe working in a hospital.  Seeing how in the blink of an eye life can be over.  Enjoy each day like it may be your last.  Tell everyone you love why and how much you love them.  It is a good day.  A great day.

That will be a great solution to selling the house.  Plus it is a known commodity for your son to be getting into.  That is the scary thing when buying a house...what is wrong with it?  This way, you should already have a pretty good grip on any issues.  The added bonus of keeping it in the family is wonderful.

I'm glad that you are starting to be happy again.  I remember last year when I finally realized that I was happy again after having to adjust to handling my Mom's affairs.  One day I just realized that things were under control and I could go back to living my life again.  What a weight that was removed.  It is a great feeling isn't it?

I do hope your son get's his grandmother's house--she would be so happy to know that.  I sometimes pass my grandmother's house, and it just makes me so sad that I'm unable to go through that house again.. Hugs - Julie

That would be wonderful if your son can get the house.  I'm so glad you are finally happy again.  I think you will also start to feel much better health wise.  I'm thinking your MIL would love this also.  Have a good Tues.  Chris
