It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Throw Back Thursday

My in-laws live on his family's centennial farm, which is exactly what this puzzle is: a picture of "The Farm". Every year we put it together...together.

I'm a little weepy this morning as I am up early to pray for a friend and prepare for the holidays. This picture is Christmas Eve last year. It was our first Christmas together as an unofficial family of 6. It was our first time building what will be considered traditions this year for our newest daughters.

Honestly, there were points in this past year where I didn't think that everyone in this picture would be together this Christmas Eve.

I am so thankful that in a few hours, we will be together putting this puzzle together again.
