Two years??? Really???

Has it really been almost 2 years since I posted on this dusty ol' thing? So much has happened in those 2 years! Hard things, a little. Mostly wonderful things though :)

Life is good and very full - much busier from the days I blogged more. But I will say, blogging was a good way for me to keep focused on my wonderful life, to not lose sight of the many blessings. Sadly, its easy for *me* (maybe even *you*) to get caught up in the dirty diapers, the sleepless nights, the PB&Js - but really are any of those so bad? I love keeping my little baby clean, I love nursing my son in the night - being the 5th child, that is often *our* time. I love providing nourishing meals for my family.

Well, my morning must get rolling. Maybe I will journal here more you poor neglected thing ;)


Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
