It was exactly 1 year ago when we made the decision to move back to the US.
1 year ago, we were scared, worried, unsettled, angry, frustrated, and anxious. We didn’t know what the future held (and I’m kinda thankful we couldn’t see 3 moves and Keith losing his job in the spring, because I think that would have freaked me out even more!).
Today, we are settled, happy, calm, peaceful, and thankful.
I am so thankful we are here. I love where we live.
I never want to falsely represent our lives as perfect. None of us live perfect lives.
But this is about as good as it gets. And I am so thankful. My oldest girl is turning 9 next week.
My husband loves me, respects me, and has a job that he likes.
After struggling with respiratory stuff and constant antibiotics in China, I’ve been on exactly ONE antibiotic since moving back.
My kids are happy. They’re involved in stuff they love and they love Florida.
So maybe it is a little saccharine-sweet and gush-gushy, but I feel like this photo below:
Thank you God for bringing us home.
I’m looking forward to this American Christmas so much.
May God bless you and yours this Christmas- and may He give you the time you need to sit and reflect on the past year of your life. And if you’re in the valley, I pray you reach the mountaintop soon.
