Once we decided to move, each day passed quickly. We started packing early but soon became very hurried as the moving day arrived. The most difficult task is always to decide what is absolutely necessary to move and what is not. After staying in one house for a number of years we had accumulated a lot of things. For sentimental reasons, it is always difficult to discard those things which mean so much to one’s past. On the moving day everyone was hurrying around the house, and the children also ran around shouting and yelling; everything seemed like utmost confusion. The last minute items were packed quickly, and many other items were discarded. Slowly the moving van was filled. and we saw only empty rooms with open doors and windows. The home we had open doors and windows The home we had known so long seemed so strange. We felt no warmth. Laughter or cheer as we closed the door behind us.
