It was an amazing three weeks having my (Blake's) mom here. We had a great time with Mom here visiting a few new historical sites, walks around our house, and morning chats over coffee. The kids were SO happy to be with their Nana.
I often am reminded how lucky we are to have such supportive and loving parents, brothers, and sisters. This past year or two has been especially difficult not being able to visit them in the U.S. for various reasons. Not once have they expressed frustration or made us feel guilty. They do everything they can to visit us as often as possible.
We are so fortunate to have them in our lives. And we thank God for blessing us with the opportunities we've had to be together. It's never as often as we want, but God is faithful to sustain us all during times of separation. We are also so very thankful for things like FaceTime, keeping us connecting on some level at all times.
This team is a huge help in keeping our heads up when we begin to miss family. Thank you for all your love, prayers, and support. We are so blessed to be on this team with you.
