The Circle of Life
Eventually all the leg work was done on the loan and it was time for the ceremonial signing of the papers. Actually, there isn’t really any ceremony at all. For a process that takes two hours and grants you “the American Dream,” all you really walk out with is a stack of papers, a hand cramp, and a silly smile on your face. Fortunately, a little twist of fate gave the process a bit more feeling. The little board room where Paul, Rhema, Colleen, and I sat around a table to give Colleen and I our first house was only a few hundred feet from where Paul went to grade school and only a few blocks from Paul and Rhema’s first house together.
