Please Forgive Us

Dear family and friends,

We want to apologize for waiting so long to update our blog and ask you to forgive us. We were really busy, or should I say overwhelmed when we first got home, and the blog was put on the back burner until we could catch our breaths. I have thought about posting just about every day since we came home, but once we got behind, it seemed like we could never catch up. We know some of you have been thinking, “How could they not have time to just upload a picture and write a few words?” We know because we thought the same thing about some friends who just quit posting to their blog when they got home. We thought, “How could they leave us hanging like that?” Now we know. David hit the ground running when we returned catching up on work and ministry at church. And Lois? I was busy taking care of Hannah and trying to get some sort of order to the new house. For those of you who don’t know, we took up residence in a new house when we returned from China. Most of our belongings were still in boxes, and everything was in disarray when we got home. It has taken months, but we are finally feeling like we are getting the house in order. We still only have one picture hung on the walls, but we will get around to decorating eventually. To all of you who helped us pack, unpack, clean two houses and move our household, we say thank you, thank you, thank you! You have been a blessing to us!

Now, if you will forgive us for our past failure, we are going to try and take the next several days to catch you up on what has been happening around the Cooke household this past year and let you know what we’re expecting for the year to come (you don't want to miss that announcement :>)

Yes, I know how life takes over and carries you away, I'm suffering the same these days!
