The week went way too fast of course, but it was very nice just the same. This was the first time either had been back since I moved to my new place. They loved it almost as much as I do. And we all know how much that is.. right?! ;-)
My oldest son brought his dog with him; which was an extra special treat for me. Most of you remember that I had 'custody' of sweet Miss Pickles, the chocolate lab from Louisiana, for 3 years while my son was in grad school.
She remembered me after about 5 seconds and was very excited as usual about people in general and absolutely any attention. I was a little worried about her and the deer, however she was very well behaved and neither the deer nor Miss Pickles seemed very concerned with each other. That was a relief.
My youngest son always likes when his brothers are around and he was able to show them his new job and tell them all about his responsibilities as a kitchen manager. We are all very proud and happy for him!!
Now it is Saturday evening and both of my older sons are on the roads back to their homes and jobs. It was a little bitter sweet as I won't get to see at least one of them over the holidays. I'm hoping to be able to visit one over Christmas or New Years. Just depends on the driving weather and my new job.
Holidays can be hard on me; some years more than others. And it's not really about the boys as much as my having the 'hope' and 'faith' of finding the right person for me to share those times with 'each' year that goes by. Now don't get me wrong, I am very happy with my life in regards to who I am and how I live my life. It would just be more 'complete' with someone special. ;-)
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend, Everyone!!
Hugs and Blessings,
