Where the heart is

When one of my girls has been home for a visit I always have a hard time getting back in the groove.

Today has been no different.

I have a million things to say but the words, they just swirl.

My youngest daughter has been home for a few days of fall break and you know something I've realized about young adult children?

About five minutes after they're back in the house it feels like they never left.

I hear her turning on the shower and see her purse on the counter.
I watch her petting the dog and see her pouring a glass of juice from the frig.
I hear music floating from the piano and I register the familiar ringing of her cell phone.
I see her sitting across the table at dinner and lounging in her jammies on the couch at night.
And when I walk into her room in the morning and she is tucked in sweetly sleeping it does not feel the least bit odd.


That word packs a whole lotta punch doesn't it?


  1. I hope you had a lovely visit! You have beautiful daughters! :)
