Settling Back In

On the bus ride to GDL

Good byes are hard, but Hellos are so nice.  While our three months in Canada were great, hanging out with the kiddos, spending time with family and friends, doing things we don't do here in GDL, eating things we don't have here.... .... etc. etc  Nothing compares to sleeping in your own bed! Being in your own space with your own things.  It is nice to be home.

Our flights were uneventful and our bus ride equally so.  So the hardest part of the day was that it started at 3 a.m.!  But doing that with our son Mike was a bonus! Then the cherry on the top of the day?
Supper after a long day with our wonderful friends!
Real tacos!! Ym!
So today is a day of catching up.  Unpacking, rearranging things, settling in.  Grocery shopping will be on the agenda.  Moving our house sitter into his new house will happen.  Laundry, etc. etc.  Normal daily stuff.  I have a nesting feeling happening.

Our phones have been buzzing.  Nice to know you were missed and that they are glad to have you back.  I already have a breakfast planned for Friday and supper plans are in the making.  Back to life.  So nice.

So we covet your prayers, as we get readjusted to our lives, as we seek to reconnect with our friends. And once again thanks to our church for giving us a personal space to crash in.  Thanks for your care of us.

Thanks for the many meals, coffees, ice creams, get togethers, sharing of your lives, connecting & challenging each other.  It was a whirlwind 3 months. Lots got accomplished and a few things got left undone, but oh well.

A quote I recently read to put things into their place:

"Home is where there is love"

It's not a destination, it's a relationship.  I have more than one home, lucky me.  I hope you do too.
