we are home

Well, we are moved in. Still some unpacking left, but for the most part we are comfy and cozy. And I mean cozy.
Our new home is about 1/3 of the size of the one we just left and a lot of stuff had to go to storage. But, it is just stuff and I don't really mind its absence at all.

Both boys now have mild colds most likely from the sub freezing temps and snow we got to experience first hand on moving day and the following two days with no heat. Did you know if you turn your oven on and keep the door open it can warm up a little room?

So now, we have heat, hot water, and two amazing little runny noses smiling faces. Things feel right here. I can't explain it really. It feels like home in a way the other home never did. It has such a better flow. I don't know how long we will be here but I know everything will be alright.

No one ever expects or hopes to lose so much and to be financially devastated. This is something I never imagined would happen to us. But, I wouldn't change it. In the end we still have a life that is so abundant, so beautiful. I am so blessed. And time will offer opportunities to rebuild. God has already started. He is so good at rebuilding.

So no matter what lay ahead I have hope. I have no fear. For I have weathered a lot and been carried even more. So my friends, we are home. And I couldn't be happier.

(some certain little someone is having a birthday bash coming up!! I can't wait!!)
