Tonight, I sat down to my computer for the first time in four days. As I read my emails and blog comments, I was reminded again, of the joys and blessings that family and friends hold in my life. One of the emails I opened was from my daughter. She sent these fun, random pictures that she recently captured with her camera.
She knows that I am a huge fan of coffee, and sent me this picture from a recent visit they had to a local coffee shop. How is this for a picture of temptation?
Since they live so far away, and she knows how much I enjoy pictures, she also sent this picture. Made me miss them so much! You know what I mean if your children live far away from you, right?
I opened another email and received these pictures, from our second daughter and son-in-law, that live not quite as far away. This is the scene she discovered, as she turned from cooking her dinner on the stove. A little one excited to find an oatmeal box in the pantry shelf.
Once again, it made me miss them too. Thank you God for pictures, so that I at least feel like I can connect with them, despite the distance.
Fortunately, I live close enough to these little ones, that coming home provides the opportunity to see them, and their brothers again real soon.
Coming home also provides me the privilege of seeing the many signs that are everywhere now, of one of my favorite seasons of the year. The leaves are starting to change and the weather is getting cooler.
Yes, it is good to be back home! I miss you all and sure do look forward (when time permits), to visit your blogs and see what is happening in your lives.
I wish you a special week ahead!
