no place like home (time to visit)

20140516-204533.jpgThere is the most beautiful moon hanging out just outside my bedroom window tonight. Many nights I look up and dream of home.

No, I’m not from outer space nor is home located on the moon.

I guess it’s because home sometimes feels as distant as the moon is from earth. I miss my family. I don’t care how old I get, having my mom or dad wrap their arms around me and squeeze tightly will be a comfort that can never be replaced. Sitting with my siblings, laughing and acting like we are children, is heart-warming entertainment.

I miss my friends as well. Not to take anything away from the wonderful friends I’ve made here. However, I’m overdue a heart to heart or two.

It’s been five years since I last traveled home. It’s time for a visit…actually, well past time.

I’m so excited that by this time next week, I will be among family and friends probably trying to out-talk each other, most certainly sharing laughter and joy and my heart will be singing!

As I stare out my window tonight, I’m thinking, “I wonder how much has changed?”

Most likely, everything has.

Will I be a stranger in my own homeland? Out of touch?

In some ways, the answer to those questions is definitely, “yes”. I wouldn’t have a clue about what’s “in” or “hip” or “trendy”.

However, no distance or amount of time can make me a stranger…for love is amazing -bonding hearts together.

I might, however, end up on the receiving end of a few finger waves since I’ve been driving on the wrong side of the road for the past 11 years.
My driving skills may be a bit rusty.

4 more sleeps!

I can’t wait….be sure to check for photos. I’ll have so much to show you!
