Now that the ink has dried on the "life lesson learned the hard way" we went through this year, I'm reflecting on the pain we went through and put our kids through but also the lessons learned...1. Don't build unless its on a solid foundation. 2. Even if "everyone else" is doing it 3. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. 4. If being honest means you do hard things and stand alone so be it. 5. Everything has its natural consequence and hard things will pay off. 6. Lying always requires more lying, so the sooner you tell the truth, no matter how painful, the sooner the truth will "set you free."
The feelings have re-surfaced as we strangely are now in touch with the people who will live where we were building. It's a weird feeling to converse, but also somewhat freeing knowing it is someone else's home. I'm happy for them. I hope it all works out for the best.
