First, I want to thank so many of you kind readers who sent me notes and words of encouragement during my quiet time on this blog. Your prayers, emails and kind thoughts truly meant a lot to me. I had been quiet during a very chaotic time in our family’s life and something had to give for my survival—so I chose blogging. Interestingly enough my quiet time followed a post a wrote about being under attack—-and my silence had nothing to do with that post.
After building our “dream home” we found out it wasn’t as much as a dream as we’d hoped. I cannot say much (because of the lawsuit) but basically we had to move out for 5 1/2 months with 5 kids, in the middle of the Christmas holidays and our homeschool year, into a much smaller (cramped) space. During this time I tried to learn to be content in all circumstances, and failed miserably. So I have much to work on.
Now, in a whirlwind, we are finally back in our home! We moved in (although there was still work being done to and in the house) a week before our 10 day trip to Italy (an early gift from Big Daddy for my 40th birthday—-in November) and I’m busy playing catch up.
Catching up on the unpacking, organizing and decluttering. Catching up on the homeschooling—we will have a 45 minute summer break this year, and I ‘m so not kidding about that!
You can read about our trip to Italy and my other travels on my new Travel Blog. I will update it as we travel and always have a little link over here and on my Twitter account when I do add something.
In the coming weeks I will share photos from our home and blog about decorating, organizing and share what God is showing me in this season of my life.
Thank-you for reading!
