Happily Exhausted



We are home again....after traveling 1800 miles across five states in eight days. I took care of all of the things I needed to do, and then we flew to Utah to begin a tour of the north-west. It was everything we had hoped and more than we could have imagined. My little head is fairly bursting with all the beautiful sights and incredible things we experienced.

There are literally hundreds of pictures to organize and a journal, of sorts, to flesh out - not to mention all the dirty laundry we brought home with us. I feel as though I just have to quietly let it all settle into my heart and mind.

For now, I just wanted to say it's good to be home. I know I won't really be able to catch up with everyone, but I will join you right where you are.

We have so much to be thankful for:

safety in our travels
beautiful weather every single day
new friends
experiencing the miraculous wonder of the
Father's creation
the Father's tender care of our loved ones

I missed you.

Blessings,
Linda

Hello dear Linda:-)

Welcome home! I've been so out of the blogging loop lately due to having such a crazy busy summer but things are starting to settle down now and I'm having more time for the computer. Woohoo! lol

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip but traveling that far in 8 days, it's no wonder you came home exhausted!! I look forward to seeing pictures and reading about your travels. xoxo
