Back to Blogging???

Yep, believe it or not, we are still alive here in the Tiger Den!

There is no way to get caught up on our lives since the last time I posted...so I'll just say, life is crazier than ever and we have just added to our family through adoption.

Please welcome our little Ugandan Princess!


This was her first experience with a "wishing well" or fountain.  She had a great time playing in the water throwing in pennies.

Life over the past few months has been...full, unexplainable, wonderful, difficult...

Maybe, eventually, I will have extended time to get on here and write more, catch up a little.  Right now, homeschooling five children grades 10 through pre k and adjusting to another little one around is taking up the vast majority of my time.  Most days, I can't even remember which child I am speaking to and go through the "roll call" until I hit the right one!  Besides homeschooling, we  have church, two boys playing church ball, dance, tutorial, etc.  I had fallen out of the habit of Home Sanctuary, but after being home for a couple of weeks before Christmas, I realized I needed HELP!  I am trying like crazy to not miss a day...ANY order in our home is a God send right now.  However, I did find this week that in my quest to not miss a day of making my Sanctuary task, I became quite grumpy with all the "interruptions" so, I am trying to cut myself and my family a little slack and realize that some days, the best way to make my  home a sanctuary is by NOT completing the task and giving myself to my family instead.

Anyway, I am looking forward to visiting and reacquainting myself to my fellow Company girls this weekend and hope to get back into the habit of at least blogging once a week...it is the only hope for my children to ever have a "book of memories" cause scrapbooks or baby books are just out of the question right now!

Blessings to all and don't forget to check out Home Sanctuary for more Coffee Talk.

Oh that sweet face! I cannot wait to read more and hear her story! And you are so right, sometimes the sanctuary can ONLY be found in the disorder and mess! Prayers!!!

Glad to hear from you again. :p I haven't been around for Coffee in awhile, even though I did link up a few times without visiting others. :( Hope that all of you will find a groove soon. It will take time I'm sure.

She's absolutely precious! Congratulations on your new family member. I am glad you guys are finally home safe and she has a family to love and cherish her.

"Some days, the best way to make my home a sanctuary is by NOT completing the task and giving myself to my family instead." You've got it! That's the "Peace" part of the stool that Rachel Anne is always referring to.

Glad you're back to blogging. I missed having coffee with you. Remember the theme of 2013..."Breathe!" Just breathe mama, one day at a time.

Blessings!
Melissa
