Lots of hugging and holding has ensued since then.
I remember coming home last year from my month away so I was prepared this year in some ways. There's something special about being immersed in a beautiful place with special friends where you can grow as a person: intellectually, socially, and spiritually. So like last year, I miss it already.
But, oh it's good to be home! I've filled my day up with good things so far.
Cuddling with the kids and sitting in the backyard with Josh enjoying the morning.
Short run in the Oklahoma sun.
Coffee with Mom and Dad.
Twice in less than 12 hours.
Thanks to Josh and kids' schedules: time to reflect and be thankful.
