Oh, how we're in a season of adjustment!
If you've been following this Caffeinated  little family of mine, then you know we've been pretty nonexistent on the blog over the last chunk of time. But let me assure you,   life has been anything but silent here.

We've gone from being a homeschool family to having all four children in school - and  how they are thriving! When I started this blog, we had two little girls. Now we have three girls  and a boy - and oh, how they have grown! 

We've gone from always being at home and rarely getting out to being oh. so. busy. Our big girls just finished a season of cheerleading that they can be proud of! Our littles have really fallen in love with preschool. We spend time at speech therapy and OT each week. Our family stays busy in church. The list goes on. 

I've gone from a stay-at-home mom, to working outside the home part-time, and back home again. Now I'm learning to work from home. That's a story and a half in itself. 

We've gone through some great ups and some rough downs. We've seen God's faithfulness through it all. We've seen His handiwork in the details regardless of whether it has been comfortable or not. 

If you know me, then you may know that writing has been my home for as long as I can remember. A fortress to keep my thoughts. Writing gave me the ability to imagine anything and share it with others. I always knew that I'd write. Adulthood tempts me to question that sometimes. But I always come back to it for several reasons. While it may not be today that I write a book, I'm using today to resurrect my blog from the abandoned corner of the internet. I hope to use my writing to connect with others, spread some joy, maybe some fistbumps in mom solidarity, and share some insight that is beneficial to anyone who stumbles here. 

I'll end this blog post with a quote that I can feel in my bones. It was penciled in a diary by an extraordinary young woman going through the most horrific of times. She sought comfort in chronicling her life as it happened. She found her words, she wrote them down as her heart spilled out on her pages, and she impacted countless people who have come into contact with her words.  

"Paper is more patient than people." -Anne Frank

I'm lifting my coffee mug in the air. Here's to paper being patient with me, and letting me make my own little impact.
