Home Means Family

Seems we were missed – a heartwarming piece of information. Also seems that so much has happened in our absence –

  • two breakups
  • first time home purchase and acquisition
  • job promotions
  • job losses
  • renovations – inside and out
  • a new haircut
  • loose teeth
  • baby has disappeared

We’ve been busy (when I’ve been up to it) catching up with our kids. Life whizzes by when you are young, I had forgotten. We were gone for five months, and yet it seems like a lifetime in some instances.

“Do you remember me?” I ask the youngest (soon to be three).

She shakes her head, clinging to her mother.

“I’m your mommy’s Mom,” I tell her. She shakes her head, but looks at her mom, who nods in agreement, then throws her arms out for me. Instant reconnection.

Nothing fills my heart my more than children, especially grandchildren.

So, if I have been a little light on the posts lately, it’s because I’m filling up….and then, napping.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
