Going Home



Going home today! There's nothing like family, feeling the love and getting to love back. Making your parents smile and laugh because you're their child no matter what your age. I got to watch the color come back into my dad's face and the worry, leave my mom's.

I'm leaving here with my cup running over and a big smile of relief that all is well in my parents house. I have felt light hearted and helpful and reassured that the mending road is well under way.

I miss my husband, my puppy and my own bed. And the huge pile of laundry that is sure to be waiting for me. I am bursting with poetry...words, phrases, experiences all turning around in my brain trying to finding their way to paper and pen. I have loved being here, but I love going home too. When I walk in the door I take a deep breath and inhale the scent that represents us. It's a good smell...the smell of home :)

And in the solitude of my home...is where I will let these last few days unfold into verse and reason and enjoy the process of giving all of this over to my creative person, as I send my 'care-taker' persona on vacation.

loving you all more than words can say <<<<<<>>>>>>> x Darlene
