We're Back

Been gone a long time...or so it seems. It was one of those vacations where you end up needing a vacation from your vacation. Too many hours in the car over too many days having slept in too many beds. seriously, there is nothing like your own bed! I slept last night like I haven't slept in a long time! I'm pregnant right...but I don't even think I woke to go to the bathroom. Ahhh!

Still, it was good to see family and relatives we haven't seen in a long time. In Jackson, we saw some cousins that have never seen M. I think M had a good time, but I sensed she was long past ready to come home too. Funny how important that sense of home is. That place to come back to that is yours. That is quiet and peaceful and safe. Makes me wonder how many people search for that "home" their whole lives.

Our tree is up. Our house is still a general disaster (all the unpacking just make that worse). I'm still sick, though a good bit better. Actually ended up with an ear infection and the worst cold ever. Been having headaches just about daily which can't be good. And God has been good in the midst of all the struggles my family has been through this year. Even today He is showing himself present and at work.

I'll post pics soon. Hopefully this week, though my priority list has that near the bottom (and is quite full I might add). I'm thinking maid service for a year would be a terrific Christmas present! Ha! Till Later...

Home is always a good place to come back too! I remember when our children were young and we would go on a holiday trip and when we got back home they would just go to their room and play and play and just be glad to be in their own place. It was SO GREAT to see you all at Thanksgiving time.

I would totally give you maid service for a year if I could afford such a gift! You deserve it! But don't be too hard on yourself! You haven't exactly felt well these past few weeks and that does make a huge difference in your energy level, as well as motivation to want to clean, etc. Hopefully, you'll start to feel better soon.
