Kenny and I arrived home again an hour ago after a long day of flying. While it is wonderful to be home, and I missed all my other boys (including Dominick in that category! hahaha!) we felt a little tug at our hearts as we left Chicago and said good bye to our dear friends there, whom we will likely not see again until sometime early next year. It is the most wonderful gift in the world that God gave us, having people we are so close to living there. Not only does it make each trip something to look forward to, but their generosity in sharing their car, their home, their food...their love and support...is something we will never forget. It is almost like our home away from home, where "family" is waiting for us.
But getting back to our true family is always the best...seeing Matthew and Joshie come running up to hug us with huge grins on their faces is a real sweet moment, and I always miss Dominick so much when we are away. Absence may make the heart grow fonder but I'd gladly do without it if I could. I came home to a super clean house, and an empty washer and dryer as well, how much better can life get? hahaha!
We have no big plans for the remainder of our weekend, but think we will get a few things done around the house which we have on our project list. We might try and fit in some fun activity on Monday, not sure what though. It doesn't really matter what we do, I am just looking forward to some down time with us all together.
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
