We are home. 

It's probably something you say a lot. Heck, it's something that I've said a lot, but it takes on a different meaning now. We closed on our house December 12th, and began moving in and cleaning like a small herd of wild Banshees. There is a lot to do and now that 2 weeks have passed, I'm tired of the never ending list of things that still need to be done. 

It has been one of those Christmas' that will go down in my memory as strange and stress filled. But what is Christmas without the drama? 

Anyway, our house sits on a corner lot and it faces the Little Red River. Now we can't see it from here, but we know it's there, cuz Ed has told us. (Ed is a whole nother posting!) We have landed in Heber Springs, which is known for it's dam, the Greers Ferry Lake, and some other things that I don't know about yet.

We are on what my dad calls the wrong side of the dam. You know, the side that if the dam breaks we get gone real fast. However, we are seeing it as the right side of the dam, cuz we will be with Jesus real fast.

On the other side of the river is Cooterneck Road, can't say as I've been there yet, but with Google maps, we will be finding lots of stuff. What the heck is a Cooterneck anyway?

Living by the river means we will have foggy mornings, like the one we have today. Fog is cool. It hides things, causes you to slow down and seems to bring a comforting blanket that encloses around you and feels like protection. We need that right now in our lives, that blanket of comfort.

We are home.
