~All good things usually have to come to an end...=( ~

Just wanted to let you know that my parents left today (Thursday) to go back home to the Great USA! We had a BLAST having them here and made a TON of wonderful memories! They just called to let me know that they arrived home safely, Praise the Lord!
As for us, we had a sad and lonely day today after they left, but it really helps us to know that we are going to see them again when we go back to the USA soon to have our baby there. I was soooo exhausted that I slept most of the morning and afternoon today, but this evening God and my girls helped me take all of our Christmas decorations down and we packed them up and then Phillip put them away in the closet for us. That was an overwhelming job facing me, and I thank the Lord for HIS help getting all of that done. Since our girls just received some more PACES for this year, we need to start school again right away. Thanks for your prayers for my parents while they were here. God protected them and they weren't sick one time... God is awesome!! However, they did sort of get worn out with ALL OF THE WALKING that we have to do here!! =D
It's too late at night to post a long post with pics, but I'll try to do that as soon as I can.

If you are like me it will take a day or so to find your happiness again. You will settle back down and life in Columbia will have joyous moments again I'm sure. What a treat/blessing to have your parents come visit. I'm glad they could go.

Heather, I can sympathize with how you feel. I will pray for you today, too. When do you plan on heading for the good 'ole USA?

It seemed like for me that the homesickness was WORSE after having been together again and remembering what a wonderful time we have together. Hope these next few days are good for you.
