In some countries peole live in tents or huts. Why do we have to live in houses with so much stuff and so many THINGS, that to move them is a great effort that takes weeks and weeks of sorting and packing. Then, of course, there will be weeks and weeks of unpacking and re-sorting. Why do we do it?
In Fiji, we saw many families living in houses that had a roof, but only three walls. The people all seemed to be extremely happy. But, then again, the weather was very warm.
Ah, well, moving day is but one week away and soon we will be in a new home where we can look and wonder at all the stuff we have accumulated over the years and decide what is truly worth keeping.
Wish us luck!
