Wishing you a rad 2012

I love being a mom.

Last night the boys were exhausted and we got to snuggle in bed and read stories together.  Soon after they fell asleep with little smiles on their faces.

It was such a great moment, knowing that they went to bed warm and feeling loved.

I do love, love, love being a mom.

I know.

I'm sorry.

In the last month I have been stretched more than I ever thought possible.

We had two rounds of antibiotics for ear infections.
Our renter in Virginia moved out of the house with one day notice.
Mark lost his job out of the blue. (Layoffs).
I got the flu.
We went to Nicaragua.
I got sick again in Nicaragua.
We got home and my back went out.

It's been a very stressful month.
But in the midst of this, I feel God working.  I see his hand guiding and protecting.
And, yes, stretching.

So I'm sorry for not writing more.  I needed to process and figure stuff out.  I think we have a plan moving forward so maybe I'll be able to write more.

But, regardless of all that, Merry Christmas!  I hope it's been a less catastrophic month for you!
