I am just tickled to be back home!
I am ok with quiet time and I am ok with being alone.
I am ok with time with family and friends and seeing new places.
But there is no place like home.

I missed my sweet husband, our sons our Annie.

I am also thankful for the time I had with family.
We have had too little time together over the last 20 years.
It is very hard for me to live so far away from my sibblings and my parents.
I envy families that had the wisdom to stay close enough to where you can drive to them when they need you.
I have not given up hope on getting closer to my sibblings the older I get.

My father is 76. He has battled back from many tough times.
We are all stronger because of his wisdom.
Watching him lead us through the aging process is a gift.
I look at life these days with new eyes.

I hear things differently than when I was younger, differently than before last year when we lost my husband's mom.
I miss her.
I had gotten used to the idea of having her in my life.
She was so sweet to me.

I hope that the older I am allowed to get, the more tickled I get.

I hope I will start some new hobbies.

I also hope I will become:
Less critical
More forgiving
More patient
More Encouraging

I hope that others will hear...
My laughter, mixed with my husband's, our son's, our families, our friends we have and new ones to come....
What Beautiful Music That Would Be
