Home Again!

I am home! I am really, really, home again! I have to pinch myself cuz it seems like a dream. I have missed my lovely Utah for far too long. Never to leave again.
"How did this happen?" you ask? Well, I'll tell you .....
I prayed silently for a miracle: "Please send us back to Utah where my heart longs to be." A week later Randy came home from work and said, "Ryerson needs a General Manager in Clearfield." I stared at him in disbelief and the tears ran down both our faces. He accepted the transfer and I began the process of getting everything lined up for the move: contacting the moving company, finding a home in Utah, sticking a "For Rent" sign in our front yard in Stockton, and saying a tearful "good-bye" to sweet friends in the Creekside Ward. Then away we went! We arrived in Layton on December 13th to a prize-winning snowfall. The movers delivered our furniture two days later. It stopped snowing long enough for everything to come inside, then promptly began snowing again for two straight days. I shoveled snow with a very happy heart while singing "There is sunshine in my soul today!" One of the greatest blessings of this move is that Dustin, Courtnie, Chelsie, and Tiffanie (and their families) live close enough to come over for Sunday dinner. Also, I've re-connected with dear friends that I've missed so much. The neighborhood we live in is safe and beautiful. Our new ward at church has welcomed us with open arms. And my spirit is joyful once again! And all because of a silent but powerful answer to prayer. Thank you, thank you . . . with a grateful heart, thank you! I am home again!
