Yesterday, I walked out the door of the company I started in 1999 for the last time. It was no longer mine after selling it in 2011, but I ran it as if I still owned it.
I was saddened, yet relieved.
Last night, with my wife and daughters staying at a friend’s home, I slept alone, amid the boxes and empty rolls of packing tape, in the home we have lived in since December 7, 2002.
I laid there with the memories of those years flooding back and to say it was a restful night would be an exageration.
This morning, I am up early, waiting for the movers to load what they packed yesterday and the “walk-through” with the soon to be new owners.
Two endings that match this overcast morning.
Tomorrow, we start the next chapter as we move to Southwest Michigan.
It is an exciting, new beginning and we are filled with anticipation. I look forward to sharing that journey.
