Whew, it’s Friday and I am thrilled. I’ve had a pretty uneventful week, but last weekend was so much fun. I went “home”. I wonder what folks do who don’t have their very own “Happy Place”? My “Happy Place” is 200 miles from my front door, but I was reminded last weekend it could actually be another planet. I thought this would be a great place to share A Beautiful Life post.
I got to see my family. I went to my grandmother’s farm. I shopped at The Amish. I visited with my sister. I swam with another sister. I got stood up by another sister. I had breakfast with my aunts. I got to see my cousin.
I told my much older cousin (love ya Kathryn) that I’m never going back to my grandmother’s farm, I’m sure she was in heaven laughing as I drove away crying like a baby. I miss her. I finally realized though that I have a “Happy Place” because of her. It was her love and commitment to each of us that created the family I love so much. I hope I am half the mother that she was.
I was sad for a few days after I came home, I feel like I miss out on so much. I feel like The Baby Girl needs to have family closer and more available.
I was sad for days, even tried to get Mr. Wonderful to agree to move closer. I am ok now. I know it’s my home, it’ll always be my “Happy Place”, my family is there and they always will be.
I wish things were different. I wish I had a brother that I could pick up the phone and call, it’s just not possible. I wish I was closer, it’s just not possible.
