I want to start by telling you a short story...
Not long ago a good friend came up to me and told me he needed to talk. I thought, OK? He has been a good friend for over 6 years. Our kids are friends and play sports together. When he said he needed to talk I thought, "Maybe he has some bad health news?"
I knew he had been interested in moving to a new house in the next year. I would regularly keep in touch even if it was a few weeks of not seeing each other.
He went on to tell me that "He had just bought a house" and was under contract.
