I flew back home today after a nice (but oh so short) visit to see my family. My flights were uneventful and I made it back to my home safely.
It makes me sad to realize that I won't be able to see my family again for a little while, but I am so thankful for modern technology that makes it so simple to keep in touch. I have been so blessed with family members (parents, siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews) that make my life so full of joy! Even though I don't live close to any of them I feel their influence in my life each day. Their prayers for me and my little family are felt through the miles, and I thank the Lord for them each day.
Thank you family for making me laugh and feel so loved these last few days. I'll see you again in January!
When Peter gets excited he has to poo. So, when I got home, after being gone for 5 days, Peter ran up to me and was panting and jumping in excitement. I asked him if he wanted to go for a walk (yes, I talk to my dog) and he ran circles all around me--his way of saying, "Heck yes I wanna go for a walk!" As soon as I took him out he pooped. We then walked down the driveway and he pooped again. We turned the corner into the next neighborhood and again, he pooped. We walked another few minutes before he started circling again to (again) poop. First walk with Mommy after she's been gone for 5 days and 4 poops. I think Peter was happy to see me! :)
