New Home

Hello, F.O.T.E.'s,
I only have time for a quick update this morning.  We are trying to wrap up loose ends at the rental house (cleaning, etc) and get unpacked at the new house.  Eating the elephant...
  I wanted to say that now that our furnishings are in the new house, the sadness is lifting somewhat.  I have realized that the problem here was the emptiness.
   Empty maternity clothes....empty house....empty bassinet....empty womb. 
The day of the walkthrough, when I stepped into the house, I was again overwhelmed by the emptiness.  I thought, "This is empty....just how I feel."
  Moving day was last Saturday.  There were fleeting times of overwhelming sadness.  I had good friends there to hug me, pray with me.  Oh, what would I do without those people God put here to be "Jesus in skin?"  We're in this together, People! 
    Anyway, we are little by little settling in.  We had a glorious time last night playing in the yard, walking down the driveway (down and back is a third of a mile), watching the tractors baling our hay.  The temperature was pleasant.
   There was a black and orange butterfly frolicking around our lilies.
    It's good to be home.

I can't wait, either, Jamie. It is beginning to feel like home and I'm beginning to believe I can heal here. Love, hugs and prayers back!
