Already, it has been a few weeks back in the warm Hispaniolian sunshine, back to the homeschool grind, and trying to keep up with the feeding of these hungry kids of mine. I want to share a few pictures of some really important people in my life that I was able to see during my short visit to St. Louis.
I was so blessed to spend quality time with my sisters. Not too long ago I wrote about missing them while living in far off Haiti. I wish the circumstances would have been better, but I am so grateful for our time together. I know my kids would have loved to be with me so they could hang out with their cousins. Our kids all have a special bond that I hope will continue throughout their whole lives.
My last full day in St. Louis, my best friend from college, Krystal Jones, drove all the way from Bloomington, IN to visit a few short hours with me and my parents.
Time was too short; however, it was time well spent! I am blessed to have all of these beautiful people in my life to support, encourage, and challenge me to be a better mom, wife, teacher and friend.
My mom is doing well. Her CA125 (blood marker for ovarian cancer) continue to decrease rapidly. I am thankful that God is keeping her in the shadow of his wing and that His presence has been continually revealed.
