10 pm on a saturday night


um, hi.  been a few days, hasn't it?  it felt like i barely kept the family fed and in clean clothes these last few days, so blogging was kind of out of the question.  usually it is a healthy release for me, but it would have been just another thing to do this week.

lots of things going on.  luca needs a patch for his weak eye (he is not a fan) and family photos were taken (thanks alan!), we went to a barn dance (yeehaw!) and the laundry battle was finally won (jesse and i tag teamed it all morning).  enzo's first birthday is in a week!!!  (how did that happen?)

and those we love had such big life stuff happening.  with a sick little girl in tanzania and a dad needing quadruple bypass surgery and new babies being welcomed.  wow.  my heart is stretched.

for us, the big stuff included the two year anniversary of saying good-bye to harehok.  i am a bit out of sorts and working through some of that as well.

but i just want to say hello to the new friends stopping by.  and the old ones too.  you are all so loved.  do you know that?  you really are.  and i am not the only one who feels that way.  i can't even begin to understand or explain how much God loves you.  HE LOVES US!  and we need that love.  desperately and completely.

xoxo,
annalea
