Maybe you've heard of the St Joseph statue and prayer for selling a house. This is one busy saint - his little likeness is sold by several dozen providers just on Amazon :-) Although I am a strong believer in bringing positive energy to your goals in multiple ways, I hadn't thought about getting our own St Joseph. Until Saturday.
Clearly I'm anxious to have the house selling behind us, so after just six days on the market I decided to invite St Joseph to get buried upside down in our front yard (that's how it works). Saturday afternoon I ordered him from Amazon for a Tuesday delivery. Monday morning I got the text message that the package would be delivered that day. The realtor called at 2:30 with an offer.
When I got the package about 4:30 I was very surprised at how small he is! That is a lot of power in a very tiny package!! While he was out there riding around in the delivery truck I was already working on a counter offer.
|The picture is the size of a playing card|
Our counter offer was accepted this afternoon, and we are so excited!! We all know it's not sold until escrow closes, but we're feeling pretty positive this early into it. With a 30 day escrow things will be hopping around here! My plan is to let the realtors do the worrying and all the last minute scrambling ...... it's a good plan.
In addition to St Joseph, all you "commenters" were right as well :-) Many of you saw it happening quickly, and all of you were wonderfully supportive. It is so appreciated, and I'm sending virtual hugs to all of you for the great mojo you sent our way. Not that I'm letting it go until we have a check in hand, and turned over all the keys!!!
