Home Again

I’m back home after a few days away. It’s good to be back.

  • I’m raising my kids 30 minutes away from where I was raised; in the small town that I was born in
  • I remember camping trips and raspberries and milk from a cow
  • My kids can walk to their friends’ house and it takes me 15 minutes to ride my bike to work
  • The movie theatre in town still has “love-seat” chairs and you don’t have to take out a loan to buy popcorn
  • Girls like me drink beer on a Friday night and love to play baseball
  • I live in a country where we don’t have to be afraid to vote (though they happen too often…that’s another story)
  • I talk about God, family, mistakes and love in my writing and it makes me feel better
  • We have snow and more snow, but we can still have fun and lots of babies in the fall 😉
  • My kids are healthy, safe and warm and I am blessed
  • My husband loves me and misses me when I’m gone
Life is good and I’m home again.

I heard this song twice on the drive – a new song – and a song that makes me think of summer and small towns and me:
