home sweet home

our flight from miami to msp got delayed over an hour and a half - after we'd already gotten on the plane, they told us there was something wrong with the brakes and we deplaned. i was annoyed, because i was so ready to be home, but i guess i'd rather land in minneapolis with brakes that work. maybe it's just me.

i finally got to bed at around 3 this morning, after a middle-of-the-night snack of peanut butter toast and cold skim milk - AMAZING. boy, was it good to be in my own bed, with my own pillow and my own sheets and my husband. and to use my own shower. and to drink my own coffee this morning, and sit on my couch and snuggle with my kitty.

our house seems so big and clean and cozy. and we have so many beautiful things. our hardwood floors looked shinier than i remembered, and sammy was bigger and fluffier than i remembered, and ryan was even cuter than i remembered, and my car was cleaner than i remembered (although that's probably because ryan has been driving it, and he vacuumed it for me. ha!)

thanks to all of you for your prayers. i really sensed God's protective hand on me in haiti, in spite of the potential dangers. and a huge thank you to those of you who supported me financially - your generous gifts are what afforded me the privilege of briefly joining God's work in haiti. it was an incredible experience, for which i am eternally grateful. thank you for letting me share my thoughts with you, and for walking with me on this part of my journey.

i'll write more - and post pictures! - at a later point; i'm now off to unpack further ... love.
