on the goodbye and one day back

If there is such a thing as a good goodbye, we had it on Friday night as we celebrated the year with our Have Faith Haiti Mission family. 

Ice cream.
Slide show of pictures of our fun and adventures over the year.
Sweet prayer time.
Sharing of hugs and special notes.

Yes, it was a good goodbye.
Or see you later, as I prefer to say.

After being dropped off at the airport by Gramma and PawPaw and bidding a difficult farewell to them, all our travels went smooth, as much as traveling with 4 children can be termed smooth. 

At the airport.

All our luggage arrived and transportation details worked out.
The best part, being greeted by our sweet Via family.

And here we are, back in America. 

At the risk of being too honest, if there is such a thing, I will admit that our first full day here was pretty rough. We are all out of sorts and dealing with a lot of big emotions that are coming out in not so pleasant ways. We also are dealing with some health issues and no one is feeling 100%. 

The full reality of what reemergence looks like is hard.
I knew this was going to be hard. 
But I am one day in and just realizing how hard this hard is going to be.

I'm not complaining and I'm not without joy, but I am in desperate need of Jesus today and in the days ahead. He is my rock when all around is unsettled.

Thank you for all who are praying for us and everyone who is helping us out in these days...lending vehicles, watching our kids, transporting luggage, stocking our fridge, and just being completely awesome. We are so thankful.
