Home again, home again...

Last year's homecoming
Absence truly makes the heart grow fonder! Last evening, the joyful reunion after five days of separation, the kids all piled on me, the sweetness of their caresses and lilt of their excited voices. Aaron's bass booming underneath. Today, a busy day of appointments for me and my cancer-ridden black lab. Thank you for all your prayers - another two weeks before I get results from my scan and blood test.

Still counting...
1457: peace in the afternoon sunlight after taking my radioactive iodine
1460: riotous laughter
1469: water soothes my throat
1482: naps
1486: bathroom trips done
1497: night at my mama's
1501: my aunt and uncle's home sweet home
1506: children to cuddle again
