Just around the corner...

Always Joyful AbbySue
Always Dancing Zibby
Always Thinking Benjamin

We are coming to the end of our month long stay-cation at Papa & Grandma's house. It has been a joyful end to an almost two year long journey of faith for our family. There have been a number of highs and lows along the way. Memories we've made are stored away and preserved like a jar of Mamo's strawberry jam....waiting to be opened and savored in time.

Literally up the hill, Home awaits. The Old House sits quiet. Those empty rooms will burst with life in just days. We will fill it to the rim with the sounds and songs and words and tears and all the love of Us.

The first of many celebrations will be Christmas.

This is a new chapter in our lives. And one we have been working towards for almost 13 years.

We are beginning to feel the closest to "settled" that we have ever felt on this side of heaven.

The gift of "Almost Home" is just around the corner.


  1. Congratulations! May God continue to bless your family as you start this new chapter.

  3. I am so happy for you! God is good.
