Morning Thoughts-----Home and Love
Tomorrow I go home. Home. That word contains so many meanings. A sense of place, of belonging. Feeling comfortable. Feeling loved.
It has been a very long and interesting summer for me.
My son and daughter-in-law took me out to an Indian meal last night. A good bye meal and a preparation meal for their upcoming trip. I am returning in November to dog sit while they make another two week whirlwind trip to India.
We talked about all the things we did while I was up here; boat rides, dinners out, swimming, movies, more things than I do in a year in Mexico. But the most important part is the love. Nothing outshines that.
In Mexico, I have the love of my friends and Chico. Here, I have the love of my son and daughter-in-law and their two dogs. I also have a few friends up here. I thoroughly enjoyed our lunches out and the meeting at Walter Mitty's. I am a blessed and wealthy woman....... Maybe I have TWO homes now.
I hope that my ex husband has finally found his home. It is a tragedy that he was unable to feel the love in this world. Love is all around us. We just have to open our hearts to it. TO BE LOVED, LOVE. Love is used as a verb in the previous sentence. It is an active word......
