Home Again!






After two weeks of quiet rest visiting our daughter in New Mexico, 
it was time to make the long trip home.
The children fairly tackled me in the airport, and I loved every minute of it.
Although I cried more than a little leaving Anna,
 I am glad to be back home in our log home 
with my wonderful husband and the sweetest children ever.
They (Brian and Rose) managed the house, school, and the children very well without me.  
All was in order when I walked through the door.  What a blessing!

It as been snowing steadily since I came home.  
10 inches of new snow graces the ground and leaves us happily snowed in.  
A little mishap with the Beast (our snowplow) has left us unable to get the road open.  
Oh well, we are quite content.  
At the moment, I am surrounded by the children, 
who are cutting up cardboard boxes to make castles, cars, and some unidentified objects. 
 Rose just made some fabulous pizza in the wood cook stove.  
The kettle is singing merrily on the stove, 
the dog is laying on my feet,
all is well.  
I loved being with Anna, but at the same time, 
I  agree with Jane Austin- 

             

--Especially in a snow storm.

From our warm and snuggly home to you,
Grace Be upon You!

I love reading about your contentedness! It is a gift to ourselves and our families when we are content with what the Lord has given us.

I can just picture the beauty of the cabin and your happy family busily playing!

I'm sure that you and Anna have made wonderful memories as friends, as well as mother/daughter.

Welcome Home! I'm so happy to hear that you had a wonderful time with your daughter, but you are right. There is no place like home. I leave tomorrow to drive to Portland, OR to stay with our daughter for a week. Although I'm looking forward to seeing our granddaughter, I'm already missing home in my heart.
Blessings,
Betsy
(Hopefully those socks are keeping some feet warm in this cold snap we're experiencing.)
