We were away from home all summer. I went to Houston in April when my dad went into the hospital. I only came back home for one week, but I needed to return to the hospital when my dad was readmitted. After my dad died on June 1st, it seemed best for me and the kids to stay with my mom for a while. We traveled a few places from her home, but we were away from our house for almost three months while Matt commuted back and forth for work.
Once we got home, and for the first time in my life, I had no desire to travel. I was drained – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I needed to be with my family, in my home, going through our gloriously-monotonous routine for a while.
Thankfully, this season of desiring stability has passed, and we are looking forward to getting back on the road again. We have some great adventures planned for 2015, and we look forward to sharing them with you.
