Short timers...

I really want to blog again. I do... Really!

I just can't seem to find the words anymore to put them down in an interesting way.

Where do I start?

Where do you want me to start?

Some news first maybe.

We lasted five months in the south. Mississippi, that is.

What does that say about me?  I want to feel bad about not being southerly minded, but I just don't.   I never thought I would be a Midwesterner, but I believe that is what I have become.  We love it here in Missouri. We feel this is where we belong. In a community where our children can grow up with people that know and love them.

Anyways, no matter how it looks to outsiders, our decision was not made lightly and I believe (from my lack of worry) that this is where The Lord wants us to be. We learned a few things down there.  Maybe it was the only place and time where we could have learned these little nuggets of wisdom. I am grateful that we could do that and return to our friends

And because our home did not sell, we got to move back into a home fully furnished. Since we were going to have the house packed and moved once, we just had to put the clothes back in the drawers and dishes in the cupboard. We just took basics with us. It has been so peaceful being back.

The kids were even able to go back to private school thanks to a huge blessing. We are truly grateful.

Nothing makes us appreciate a home, neighborhood and friends like moving away from them. You are blessed to be able to return! I am looking forward to visiting you here in blogland again.

SO glad you are happy and back where you belong! There truly is NOTHING like it! I lived in Idaho for 11 years and never truly felt like I was home. Lived here in WA for a month and INSTANTLY KNEW this was the place! There is NOTHING better than that feeling of peace knowing you are where you are supposed to be! Who cares what it may or may not look like to ANYONE one else! You are amazing and I am SO glad you are back and happy!
