Hello everyone :)
It's been a few days since I've last been on here, but I've just been so very busy with my wonderful family.
Tuesday night we picked them up at the airport. I have to tell you that the best thing about us is that we always pick up right where we left off, no matter how many years have gone by without seeing each other.
My niece and nephew are so big and grown up, and of course it's always wonderful seeing my brother and my sister in law. My only wish would have been to have all my siblings nearby, but who knows, maybe one day :)
The past few days have been spent catching up on the last few years, eating good food, drinking wine and laughing until our sides hurt. It's the beauty of family time, you can be yourself, be silly, say what you think and show how you feel without having to worry about anything or anyone taking it the wrong way.
The kids are loving having their cousins nearby and we're all loving watching them get to know each other and bond.
I tell you, I haven't laughed so hard in so many years, you know that laugh until your side hurts and you're in tears kind of laugh??? Oh and I needed it so.
Anyway, it's going to be very busy the next few months as we help them get settled into their new life. If you have a moment, I would ask that you pray for them, this is such a huge change from their previous lives and it will take some getting used to....there's jobs to be found, a home, a whole life to set up. I have no doubt that they will shine and do amazingly well.
So, just wanted to come in real quick and give you an update. Now I'm going to bed, I am sooo tired, we've been going to bed super late each night and I think I'm finally crashing.
Have a blessed night.
