St. Joe to the Rescue

Those of you who follow this blog know my husband and I are in the process of building a house and selling our current one. The building is coming along just fine. The selling is NOT! We’ve had open houses and showings, but no takers. We’ve heard it all. The lot is too big. The driveway is too long. Too formal. Too expensive. Don’t like the flow. Not for us. Blah, blah, blah…

So I took my mother’s advice for a surefire way to sell a house. We buried St. Joseph upside down in our backyard!

On Sunday, my husband and I were feeling sorry for ourselves for not getting at least one offer on the house. I suggested we have a little chat with St. Joseph. This is how it went.

 We dug up St. Joseph so we could have a face-to-face talk with him.

He was a little dirty so we washed him off.

I showed St. Joseph the for sale sign to let him know we meant business.

Then we sat at our patio table and had a pep talk.

Afterward, my husband buried St. Joseph once again and added an extra prayer.

Then, because we were still feeling sorry for ourselves, we went out for ice cream – a Concrete Mixer – to be exact. It was the perfect answer to make us feel better about selling one house and building another.

We felt our chat with St. Joseph went well. We thanked the heavens for a beautiful sunset and gorged ourselves with ice cream – a delicious way to end the day.
