Hello, World. I've missed you.
I promise I have many good reasons to have been gone. It has been QUITE the ride the last few weeks.
First, my grandfather had cancer in his kidney. He had surgery, and it is all gone, but it was quite time and emotion consuming. We are SO thankful that he is alright, but he is still recovering.
I have also started classes. Though I feel like this is my easiest semester so far, I also feel like I am the busiest I have been so far. I have to remind myself to breathe (not literally, but you know).
To add to that, my husband has sprained a muscle in his back. It is not a fun thing. Thankfully he is healing slowly, but slowly is the key word. I never realized how helpful he was around the house and just in general until he couldn't help. I'm so thankful for him. I know more than anything, he's ready to get back on his feet.
Beyond that, I have been designing a few semi-professional websites (not blogs) that have taken my internet time.
Also, (I know, you're getting worn out, too), I have started small group again with an amazing group of young married women. That is not a negative thing, but it does add to the busy-ness. It has been so great so far.
Well, I'm sure you are just ready for me to get on with it. Hopefully, I'm truly back. I feel as if I've gotten my second emotional and spiritual wind, and I've been re-inspired to blog. I might even re-design myself. Actually, I probably will.
Last, but not least, the winner of the giveaway (from a few weeks ago... sorry!) is Cait from The Blessed Life! Yay! Cait, to claim your prize, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Thank you for your patience, sweet friends.
I'm back now!
