Never underestimate the power of family {my mom is home}!

MY MOM IS HOME. Can you even believe it?! If you've been following along with this blog for long, you know the story involving my mom. In this post, I informed you guys she finally made the decision to come home, for good! I wasn't trying to get my hopes up as this has happened before (last October), but sure enough...there she was at CVG Airport Tuesday morning waiting for me to pick her up :)

I can't tell you how long I've prayed for this. We're talking nearly every single day, since February of 2012...and it finally happened. To be truthful? It hasn't entirely sunk in yet that she's here, for good. I don't have to worry about squeezing in time with her all in a few quick days... she is HOME. This is her HOME now.

She's got a long road ahead. She needs a job. She needs her own place. She needs a car. So if you guys can send our family some good vibes, we're all hoping some doors open up for her soon. We know this is one of those "baby step" processes, so we're just happy she made the decision to come home and start over. I'm excited to restore our relationship. Every gal needs her momma.

Last night, we decided to take my family to dinner to have a little "reunion", and it was glorious. Full of hilarious laughter, monkey faces, and too much cheese (is there such a thing?!)!!
I think Caleb wins.
Hopefully in the next few weeks, I'll realize that she IS HERE TO STAY. Goodness, that makes me smile!

No matter what, its good to know that family is always there. Even when we make selfish, silly, ridiculous decisions... they will always be there with open arms, quick to forgive, and slow to anger. I'm thankful for family who would do anything for me. Squeeze your fam a little tighter tonight, friends!

  8. Yay for you to finally have your family in the same area. Hopefully you can get her settled and whatnot. Not sure what she's looking for job wise, but if there's a Costco by you, rumor has it they pay up to $20 an hour with benefits. Something to look into!
