"Do everything without complaining..."

As I may have said, we are trying to sell our home and build an apartment at our daughter and son in law's home. This is very traumatic---trying to decide what to take and what to sell or give away is something that should not happen this early in life! That is for "old people" and I do not feel that old! I think of my grand mother in a nursing home with her important possessions in a little basket. That was all she had left--her Bible, magazines, Kleenex, a few greeting cards--to carry with her from her room to the day sitting area. I still think of her home..spacious, with a baby grand piano, a big kitchen, and the wonderful porch I have told about. So we all have possessions to use for a while, and nothing is really OURS for very long. We are making this move because of my having cancer--the family feels we need to be settled where they can take care of me and especially John if I don't live very long. I feel an urgency to get him settled in our "apartment" and know he will be OK. Of course, God could give me many years which I pray for, but anyway, we will be OK no matter what.
Philippians 2:14-15 says "Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God..." I am trying.......
