Present


Been absent such a while now.  After such a while it's little daunting to come back.  But I think I'm ready...at least for the purposes of sharing a little here and there in the Christmas celebration.  A new year is just weeks away - a handy and appropriate time to begin an earnest, fresh start...in so many things.


For the dear, faithful friends who will read this, thank you for being so patient and for the very kind emails.

with love,

Cailan

  2. *SUCH* a darling picture of some of my favorite people! I'm glad you posted... I know my own little blog is long overdue too. But life has a way of sweeping us up into more important things. :-) I've thought of you all so much, offering up many prayers. Perhaps a chat is in order! Love you, dear friend!! ~Jaimee

  11. I am one of your faithful readers! I was so happy to see a post from you this morning. I was in Sioux Center this past weekend with our youngest son, Jacob. We visited Dordt College as well as Morningside College in Sioux City. I asked Kirsten to show me where your family lived and whispered a prayer as we drove by. Praying that you feel His presence and His tender mercies as you continue your transition to this new life in NW Iowa. Blessings to you and your family this Christmas Season.

  15. So happy to see a little post from you! Please don't feel too daunted; I think all of your readers will be perfectly content with whatever you choose to share. I am just happy, and somewhat relieved, to see you and your family looking so well. I was rather starting to worry. Happy holidays! May this season be filled with love and blessings for you and yours.
