We made it to the land of seriously... PLENTY!

WoW! This beautiful land that we call Home in Delicious Sunny San Diego! Just today- Analise just asked if even the spoon (as she was eating breakfast) was ours - her then statement was "We have a lot of stuff mom!" Well- it is true all around. We are so tremendously blessed to move back into our home! We are so tremendously blessed to have an abundance of friends who spoil us rotten! We are so tremendously blessed to go into ONE grocery store and get all the things we want or need! We are living with a huge shift in our perspective. We live with that understanding that in other parts of the world ( especially where we live in Malawi ) don't have what we have here. We live blessed, blessed and amazingly blessed. In other words- We have all that we would ever want or need in a car ride away or a click a away (since everyone has internet on their phone). We live blessed and definitely don't take it for granted. We love being home! It is so familiar and so cozy! It is a daily treat to wake up in our home. Seriously scrumptious!

Here are the girls reading books from the local library!

The house we are so very blessed to live in! Seriously!

So as we continue on here in land of AMAZING! We remember the Land we just came from. We want live balanced but it is hard to do. To live with continual perspective is hard when it is not in our face daily. It will wear off. We love that land called Africa. It has left the biggest imprint in our lives. That amazing land, the amazing people and the amazing sunsets! We already miss it. But this is a time to rest and connect with our people! We will be headed to Spokane in 21 days and would love to see alot of you. Connect with me if you want to see us!

Thank you again for loving us, encouraging us and blessing us! We are blessed to have such wonderful family and friends in our lives. Love- all of us!

The transition back to the US is crazy. Great in many ways...hard in lots of others. Enjoy the rest and reconnection with people. If you have a free moment when you are in Spokane we'd love to hear more about your guys' life in Malawi and all that is going on with your transition as well. Even if you just want to complain to people who can relate. We hope your transition continues to be good and that you are truly refreshed, encouraged, and motivated for the future during your time "home".
