I am happy!
My husband and girls will be home today! In fact they should have just landed on U.S. soil. From the airport it will take them about 3 hours to get home - after customs and getting their baggage!
When I spoke with them last I could tell they were tired and ready to come home, which is good because I am ready for them to be home!
I'm ready to get back to family dinners and crazy schedules. Becky took pity on me the other night and dragged me to her weekly family dinner with the Grandma's and Pastor Mike. I am so thankful that she did - it was a wonderful meal of roast beef, potatoes, carrots, broccoli, gravy, rolls, brownies with ice cream. The first real food I had had in two weeks. I was so thankful it wasn't pizza or drive through.
I need to pick up milk and eggs on my way home from the store today. I also need to leave a note for Lindsay that the horses need grain.
Tim said last night that he can't wait to hold me - I can't wait either! I hope I don't cry. I have cried enough these past two weeks!
I think dinner out at a real restaurant might be in the works....after they have had naps, and the younger kids get back from their week of fun at Grandma's and Grandpa's. I can't tell you what a blessing it has been to me for my parents to step in so graciously and
I am sighing big time...needing to let go of my "list of things I was going to accomplish with all my free time which didn't happen" and to settle into contentment that what did get accomplished was enough.
Now I need to put my make up on and do something with this wild hair of mine...then I need to go into our shop and smile and sell pretty things.
I hope the day goes by quickly! Thank you everyone for your prayers - knowing that you care and have been praying for me has done wonderful things for my heart. I appreciate you all so much.
Have a great weekend! I know I will!
