This past month I have been in deep thought about getting a year older & the fact that we are on the brink of celebrating ten years in one of our biggest blessings yet! Make sure to read all the way to the end & check out the slideshow!
I vividly remember running out for errands & hearing something say look over there! What I thought would be a short trip turned into a home tour. Immediately upon walking into this exact model home I knew without a shadow of a doubt that it was out of our current price range. I spoke to the in house real estate representative & she provided me the write up to confirm what I already knew. We COULD NOT AFFORD THIS HOUSE!! That did not deter me... I felt something deep inside saying this is it. I do not know how, but this is our house! I feel in love with every square inch of this house & seeing every room inside made the voice get stronger! I left the model home feeling defeated, but informed of what a house that big actually costs. I went home & had to share the details. My husband thought I was crazy for various reasons... most notably financial - I’m sure! I stepped out on faith & made an appointment for he & I to see it together! He loved it, but didn’t hesitate to say, “It’s nice, but you know we can’t afford this!”
Days went by, we moved on & put our home search on the back burner. We honestly had pushed the house out of our minds, because it was what was best. One day I receive a phone call from the agent on site at saying she'd like to know if we were still in the market for this house. Great, now I had to openly admit to her we couldn't afford the house. I took a deep breath & started to tell her & she interrupted me saying, "Things have changed & we'd like you to stop by." I blurted out that I didn't think that was a good idea because the house was out of our price range.
She convinced me to schedule the meeting. Hubby gets home & I begin to tell him what happened & he says, "Let's just go by now." By this point I have the bubble guts & I'm all kinds of nervous. We walk in & are handed the write up for the model & I was in complete & utter shock! Due to issues with the housing market the builder wanted to complete the last of his projected builds & move on. The prices had been updated to reflect that & now our dream home was definitely within our grasp. Hubby & I took a moment to discuss between ourselves & we decided to go for it. We were so grateful that we used Dave Ramsey to help cut back. Having the beans & rice, rice & beans mentality allowed us to save more than enough to make this dream a reality!
I’ve said all this to say, you can accomplish anything you put your mind to & as long as God’s in it you’ll always win!
Today, take your mind off small thinking & dream BIG! The most important thing is not to just dream, but also put in work towards accomplishing your dream!!! Watch him do the rest!
