One in this area and the other in the Midwest. Their mother passed
a few months ago, and the one in the Midwest came to help clear the house so it could be sold.
They spruced up the home: new carpet, screens, touched up the paint, everything you should do to prepare the home for sale.
The sisters noticed the grout in the tile floors and felt it needed be cleaned. They had the funds to have it professionally cleaned,
however, they took on this task, got on their hands and knees and cleaned the grout.
Their Mom has to be very proud of her daughters for the interest they took in her home to get it ready to open it up to the public. Love makes you do some good things!
The other great thing that happened: two sisters got a chance to bond
So the next
time you want to re-connect with a loved one or an old friend, invite them over and clean grout.
During all this, they found a note by their Mom that asked that I handle the listing. Out of the “blue” a phone call from one of the sisters. Their Mom’s home has sold :-)
Joanie: Couldn't think of a better person to scrub grout for 7 hours. I know mom is smiling down
Additional Note: I can’t picture two brothers on their hands and knees cleaning grout on their Mom’s floor. Now sisters, yes. Sister could turn this into the event
of the year, and if I walked in on them, I would want to join in on the festivities. jim
