‘I was pregnant with my first child when the doorbell rang. ‘Either you buy this house or you have to move.’ There was no way in hell we could afford it.’: Mom ‘in tears’ after miracle turns her into homeowner

“I knew my credit. I knew our bank account. What happened next still gives me chills to this day. She turned from her computer, looked at us, and said, ‘OK, just give me a second to print out your approval letter.’ WHAT?!?!? Did she just say ‘approved?’ We walked out of there in tears.”

‘We sold our home and belongings. We were given orders to stay at home, except unlike many, home for us is a hotel room.’: Traveling family thanks hospitality workers, ‘No matter what, they take it in stride’

“To the young lady at the front desk that my husband probably scared to death as he ran downstairs at 3 a.m., desperately seeking new bedding: They said SIX feet, lady. Seeing this industry’s willingness to continue serving so many new faces makes them all very, very brave to me.”

‘Dear kids, I know we’re driving each other crazy, but I’m pretty sure we’ll look back on this time and miss it.’: Mom learns to ‘cherish every moment’ during quarantine

“We’ll miss staying in our PJs, playing old-fashioned games, enjoying dance parties, and baking 5 batches of cookies. When the house is empty one day, I know I’ll give anything to go back to the days when your fingerprints were all over the front glass door, the floors were sticky, and your presence was right within my reach.”

‘I haven’t done any homeschooling. Today, we will do nothing. We won’t go anywhere, and I’ll let them watch TV while eating kraft dinner.’: Mom assures ‘it’s okay to feel like you’re going crazy’

“To see the playgrounds where my kids used to spend hours taped off, scares me. To hear my daughter say ‘mommy when will everything be normal again?’ and me not having an answer, scares me. This is all new for me. For my kids, for us. For you. And that’s okay.”

‘We chose RV life, RV life didn’t choose us!’: Family of 4 upgrades to an RV, ‘The only word we could use would be ‘freeing.’ You don’t realize how much things weigh on you.’

“The questions started to roll in and the eyebrows started to raise. ‘You live in what?’ We decided to live full time in our RV, for multiple reasons. We wanted to try it out. Going through our items one by one took a lot of weight off of us. We felt like we could breathe again. We could easily question, ‘What happens after this?’ The beauty is, we don’t have to know all the answers!”
