Back home

Hello everyone,

We are now back in Spain and back home. We have had quite a time though.

Our trip to the States was all we hoped it would be, and did what we hope it would do. A lot to ask from a trip, but God was merciful and gave it to us. In the next days and weeks I will put you up to date.

I am one that likes to keep things real. This is one of the reasons why I got into blogging. To know that you are not the only one going through certain trials was a blessing, and found so many of you that seem to go through the same things that I am/was going through and were open about it.... well, that is/was a blessing. I want to be used that same way, so if anyone can be blessed by the things I learn everyday, then Praise God. So I will let you know what God has shown me and is still doing in our lives.

One of the things that God used was a book that Alicia, from Confession of a Snowflake, sent to me. A while back she had a giveaway and I was blessed enough to win it. She was such a blessing, she sent me, in addition to the price, a book that she had read recently "Randsomed Dreams" by Amy Wallace. I do not usually read fiction, but I just loved that book. I couldn´t put it down until I finished it and right away I went to buy the second and third book of that series.

If you like a good book, make sure to check it out.

Well, I am off to finish doing landry and unpacking. I am so excitedd to get all my new books out and have time to start reading them.

See you ladies tomorrow.

So glad you're back! Although you're actually farther away than you were when you were on vacation. But still, it will be great to "talk" again every day. I've missed that! Welcome home!

Well Hello, Pilar. It was good to have you visit my blog again.

I'm so glad your trip went well and I hope you all visited family & friends and did some fun things.

Thanks for commenting about my daughter's play. She loves acting and singing. I'm still not so brave.

I was very inhibited when I was her age. I have done a little acting as an adult, but I'm not that comfortable with it.

I'll be back. Anxious to hear more about your trip.
Take care,
Nannette
