We live in Colorado!

I can not believe it, we officially have moved to Lakewood, Colorado. Our moving date was postponed by a day due awful weather causing the roads to be closed. Saturday morning arrived and we set off. The roads were great until we reached Evenston, Wyoming. Evenston greeted us with what seemed like a never ending wall of blowing snow, at times I couldn't see anything but whiteness which elevated my heart rate dramatically. Finally we rolled into a super 8 motel around 7pm located in Rawlins where we spent the night. Again Sunday began with the last four hours of our drive and finally found ourselves at our new apartments around 1:30pm. After unloading the moving van and attempting to unpack as many boxes as possible while trying to entertain Jack we collapsed into a well deserved night of sleep.

With packing, moving and unloading we have been the recipients of many acts of service. I am always touched by the unconditional love and prayers offered by friends and family members and this experience magnified these acts of kindness. I hope I can always follow examples such as these...

May the spirit of Christmas be with you all, Merry Christmas!
