How can one be so happy yet so extremely tired at the same time.

I don't know even how to begin this changing chapter in our story.  For a very good reason I have been neglecting this blog. Just been very very busy because we moved! Again!

Mr. Jewels surprised me one evening not too long ago by telling me he got a job in Utah and we could go back home. It took me a while for my little brain to put together all that he just said. I walked around in shock and enjoyment for the next couple of days wondering if this was really happening. And it did! We moved back to our home, he started working the Monday after we returned, our stuff came that same Monday and we have been once again unpacking and sorting and getting used to yet another new but familiar routine. It's not easy unpacking and getting ready for a newborn and that's where the exhaustion sets in, but I have received plenty of help and some delicious meals to help push ourselves in getting it all done. It doesn't seem like such a daunting task when there is joy involved.

This was a very unexpected blessing from our Heavenly Father.  Sometimes you ask and ask and ask for a certain blessing and once it is given you are truly grateful for it and you stop asking and start thanking. We felt very blessed to have a job after such a long time of not having one, and although we were away from close friends and family we knew that Heavenly Father would help us to feel comfortable with the change in scenery.

I am so grateful for this next unexpected journey and the next one and the next one, whatever they may be.

When you live in the Garlic Capital of the World you HAVE to at least ride in one.
