After what feels like months and years, we have landed on sweet Texas soil! We were met by family with posters and sweet smelling roses and have reveled in being with them for the past two days. We have talked and hugged and shared meals and our hearts are full and happy.
Jet lag has hit, and I realized real fast that I had forgotten how awful it can be! The first morning we were here, I rolled over and looked at my iPad for the time. I wasn’t thinking about how the time hadn’t updated yet, so I mistakenly thought it was 4:30 am. I laid back down and made myself be still for another half hour before getting up. At about 6, Cam and I went downstairs and made coffee and tried to be quiet. I think we were pretty unsuccessful. At 7, I think we stopped our attempt at being super quiet. When my sister-in-law made her way to the kitchen in her super gracious, loving, way, I realized that my time was off. We had gotten out of bed at 4am. Oops. We did get to experience the donut shop before 7am though!
Our hearts are overflowing with gratefulness for our family. We have truly been shown Father’s love and care through them all. Relationships have picked up right where they left off and the grins haven’t left our faces!
