One minute I was a home owner….
And in the next the bank was changing the locks.
We didn’t even have time to get everything out of the house. The court made the order to repossess just a few days before Christmas and we decided to spend the holiday celebrating with our kids rather than packing.
Most folks would say that loosing your home has to be one of the Most Terrible Things Ever. And it’s true. When the bank forecloses on your house, you feel like shit. To deny that would be a lie.
But here’s the thing – it’s not at bad as you think.
And in some ways, it’s a gift. At least it was for me.
