Out of the Proverbial Loop

For the past month my brain has been swirling with blog posts; blog posts that didn't happen. There are blogs I adore, but haven't had time to read. School has been busy. Right now I am taking English composition. I am constantly writing: essays, paragraphs, discussion questions, responding to discussion questions, etc. I am learning a lot, but also feel like all of this darn learning is cutting into my fun. I guess responsibility trumps fun (for now).

I remember this time last year I was feeling a lot of anguish because Mercy was not home yet. Oh how I ached for her to be home for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it wasn't meant to be. The old saying "Hindsight is 20/20" certainly rings true when I think about that. Her coming home over the holidays would have been a complete disaster. Thankfully God knew that and had my back, as usual. I love it when He saves me from myself.

I'm looking forward to enjoying the holidays with my amazing husband and kiddos. The Christmas light are all up, Thanksgiving groceries are purchased, and I've even put a good dent in the Christmas shopping.

Life has settled into a rather predictable routine at our house and most days it all just feels very normal. As normal as it can be with four kids anyway. My days are filled with caring for my family, school work and wondering what plans God has for me next. I am longing to return to Ghana. I miss the way I can focus on what's really important when I'm not stuck in my warm, cozy bubble. I guess I'm just crazy like that.

I hope to get caught up with everyone's happenings soon. Please say hello while you are here (I miss y'all). Wishes for peace, love, and a blessed Thanksgiving to you all!

Love this post - It's just what's been up around here too. Without the studying and grades for ME, that is. But yeah, life has a way of getting in the way of the fun stuff sometimes. Been thinking of you and am glad that you are settling in to a good routine. I'm so impressed with the drive you have to do this school thing :)

Love keeping up with you at least on facebook. I'm not taking classes, and I still feel like I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off, so I can imagine!!

I TOTALLY GET this! I feel like that too. This warm cozy bubble has it's drawbacks.

Enjoy each moment, friend.

Just stopping by for a visit. We are starting the adoption process again, Lord willing, to bring Sweet Mary and her brother Joseph home. Please pray for us! I hope that school and your children and all you have on your plate is going well. I love the name Mercy! I might have to copy you on that :)
