Unfortunately, special days make home see so far away, and Tuesday morning found me sitting on the couch in tears. I had received so many happy birthday wishes and felt so loved, but just so far away. I found a quote..."I wish you were here, but you're not here, you're there. And there doesn't know how lucky it is." Made me cry a bit harder, wanting with all my being to be back in IL, for just a while. But then a friend encouraged me, that missing home and my family just means I am so very blessed. With a close family and LOTS of love. Tears are ok. So, I cried, missing home and all my people there. Then I wiped my tears and counted my many blessings! I. am. so. very. blessed.
Lots of love and hugs from CT!
