It's really hard to know where to begin. Sometimes I think we have just closed a chapter in our lives, so that would be the end, but then we have begun a new one, so that is the beginning.
I think I start with where my heart has not been for almost nine years. My heart has not been home. I am a nester, a homemaker, an entertainer, a closet organizer and I love to garden. It's been almost nine years since a very painful divorce. So many wonderful things have happened since that time except one thing. I have not been home. When I was first divorced the kids and I lived in a place that I knew was short term. Then when David and I married we knew that our house would be about a six month stay, which turned into over three years. And then our rental, until the housing market took a turn to accommodate us. This is the first time in nine years that I have felt home. Truly home. This is where we want to be until God miraculously moves us. I have walked around in a daze these past two weeks. So amazingly grateful for the blessings of this home. I feel completely and comfortably home.
I have spent the sunny days out in the yard with the boys gardening my own dirt. This is a new beginning. I have waited a long time, with some sacrifices for this home. A home to accommodate the seasons to come in our family. Ethan asked today if we get to spend Christmas here, and birthdays and will I be a grandma in this house. It was so sweet to think about this truly being home.
So, I am back into blogging world. We were without TV and wi-fi for about two weeks. I will look forward to reading on every one's blogs and catching up. I have missed everyone I visit regularly. I have lost my camera in all of this move, so no pictures of the new house to share. Blessings to everyone...Elizabeth
