Thank you St. Joseph!!

A centuries-old tradition claims that burying a statue of St. Joseph in the yard helps homes sell faster.

Have you ever heard of this?

Me neither, until my dad told me this story of two different friends. One had his house for sale for one year with no luck, someone told him to buy a St Joseph statue and bury it in the he did...on Friday, and crazy enough, he got an offer on his house the following Monday.The other friend, had a similar situation, her home selling coinsided to the purchase of a St. Joseph does it really work?

We have had our home for sale for almost exatly 3 months. Now, we have not been in a rush to sell it......mostly because we have NO CLUE what we would do when it does sell. We had talked about getting a St Joseph statue, but wondered "where in the heck would we buy a religious store?" The idea faded away quickly......

Monday, I arrived home from Dubai and went into the office. At 1030am, Beverly (our agent) called and said that we had someone coming to the house that afternoon who was VERY interested and would probably be making an offer. At 4pm, she called me back to tell me, YES, that we did in fact have an offer on the house. Ernesto and I were going out to celebrate/shit our pants that night and before Ernesto got into the car, he got the mail......I was already in the car waiting and he said..."oh my god, this is such a coincidence" and handed me a yellow envelope....I opened it and GASPED....a statue of St. Joseph arrived in our mail the day we got the offer on the house. Ernesto said....."I ordered this weeks ago and it arrives today, of all days?" Two days later the house was under contract (pending an inspection)
That is just TOO WEIRD!! What the hell are we going to do now?


I enjoy reading your comments. Thanks for stopping by Viva Cindy!
