Home Sweet Home

I missed you, my on-line friends, more than you know. Your prayers and sweet comments set me up for lots of favor in my travels. I am back in Arizona and refreshed and renewed. Our family reunion in Chicago was a blessing. As I reflect back, I ponder so many amazing droplets of God's kindness to me...

My wonderful traveling companion, Amy, my oldest daughter...
Amy spent a night on the town visiting Navy Pier with her cousins...

I enjoyed my Mom and siblings and got to spend some special moments with each of them...

And laughter rained down among us just I hoped...

The icing on the cake was a weekend in San Diego before returning to Phoenix...
My girls got to catch up on each other...

I got to play with Susanna...

I'm one blessed woman!

I look forward to catching up on your lives, my friends. I hope all is well with you. Can't wait to visit you!

  3. We missed you too sister! Nice pictures of your family! Sooo glad you're back and that you had a wonderful time with your family and lots of answered prayers! Isn't it rejuvenating to see family members after a long time of not seeing each other? Well, it feels that way too with bloggy friends when someone is not able to be online for a while... Happy that we get to hear from you again.

    Glory to God! Have a restful sleep tonight...Love you in Christ.

  4. My Dear, Dear Friend,

    It's so great to have you back! I've missed you! Boy could I use a vacation right now. Your family is beautiful and each one with broadened smiles like you sweet sister. It's so wonderful to hear that the Lord blessed your time together and the extra special time you got to spend with both of your girls and grandbaby too!

    Have a peaceful sleep this night dear one.

    My love to you,
