Home, Bittersweet Home.



That's how I feel about now. We returned from Denver yesterday afternoon at about 3 pm, and I've been kinda down since then. Luckily I am really busy the next couple of days so it will help keep my mind off of it, but I am still missing the love and friendship and comfortable associations of my family nearby. Like Michelle has already said, I wish we could all form a compound and live together. There is no other company I enjoy more, no one I love to laugh with, talk with, and rejoice with as much as my family. I would have it no other way, even though we live far from one another. It was my parents, my grandparents, and my aunt Denise's family, along with Timm, Bella, Michelle, and Eva- my favorite people on this earth! It is such a grand experience and blessing to be so inspired, loved, improved, uplifted, and bettered by your family. We had 4 generations converged together, and I love each one of my family members so. It feels good to be home and back to my quiet routine, but even though I was constantly shushing people at Denise's, I miss the commotion and bustle of having loved ones nearby. I will update more later, but I have a ton to do for Lola's Legacy and Bella's birthday in the next 2 days. Until then, I am just so grateful to count my family as my best friends and examples. I look forward to the day we can all meet in the Celestial Kingdom and live together forever- I need to keep this goal in mind to do my best!

I'm still missing the babies terribly, but thankfully I've put all the baby gates, cribs, toys, etc. away so that I don't cry every time I see them! (Of course, I still get blue everytime I see some finished household project left in Timm's wake--I can't believe my good fortune!)

I have also been thinking about how spending a few days with my favorite family members motivates me to live a better life in the hopes of spending eternity together. Then we won't have to always be saying goodbye and wondering when we'll be together again.

Your words make me feel so grateful and lucky to have family close by and remind me to never take it for granted. You were missed the short time you were gone, so I can only imagine what your family must feel like living so far away from you. Glad you are back and I hope your busy schedule the next few days helps ease the longing. Call me if you need anything at all :)

I missed you while you were gone, too. I'm glad you're back but I'm sorry you're feeling blue. Let me know if there is anything I can do.
I love the picture.

I too, am sorry you are feeling blue Jessie. I go through a down period too, whenever I come back from seeing my family in CO. The 4 of us need to plan a roadtrip out there sometime, so we can all lament on the drive home together (:

I hope your spirits get lifted over the next few days, and please feel free to call me or drop by if you need anything!

Dad and I too had the blahs, but I dug right in to the throws of the store and the horrid mess of moving my warehouse. The staff had done an enormous amount while I was gone , not all to my liking (call me Martha....) but there is so much to do in order to be functioning normally. Our trip keeps me committed to retiring as soon as possible. The babies are so so so so cute and fun and it is sad, sad, sad, very sad, way sad, SAD to be so far away. The birthday looks like a huge success and fun! Missing and loving you all.....
