My childhood home

As of today, my childhood home is on the market. My parents lived in the same house for over 30 years. They are retiring to New Jersey this summer, near the shore. So, my next visit back home will be my last. I am not sure how I feel about that. I still have a few friends back home, but I am not sure I have will have many reasons to head back to Ohio. That makes me a little sad. But, my folks will be a bit closer now, which will be nice. It won't be a long drive for them to see the grandkid, and we will have a place near the beach.

Anyway, the baby isn't here yet, but I have a feeling my posts may be a little sporatic.

Hey Matt,

I really enjoyed this post. It's something that many of us can relate to. Plus, it's such sharings that bring everyone together as they are from the heart and also meaningful. In the end, life is all about meaningful heartfelt authentic relationships. Thank you so much for sharing this "random" post. Pls do write more such posts.

Funny how we all have such different experiences. We moved a whole bunch of times when I was growing up, lived overseas then came back, then I lived all over the place when I went to college in the UK, and I was so desperate to come home and not go anywhere for as long as possible. Luckily my parents have now had their house since I was in high school and they will not move again, so that is stability for me finally (as an adult!)
