I was spoiled this last weekend.  My sweet hubby played Mr. Mom all weekend so I could go have a great weekend with my parents and sisters.  I had such a nice relaxing time.  I also had a few girlfriends who were kind enough to help when Jonathan had to go back to work.(thanks girls)  It is amazing what a few days away can do for the soul; especially when you are with the people you grew up with.

However, there is still a part of me that I can’t leave behind.  Even while I am away, I am still looking behind me waiting for my four little ducklings to catch up.  There is just a little anxiety floating around in my head, and I can’t pinpoint what it is until I remember I am without my family.

…And then I begin to think about them, and how much I love them.

I took this beautiful flower picture while I was there.  It reminds me of God’s love.  Flower texture

I have to think that if he loves me as much as I love those four little ducklings; then he must really love me a lot.  I bet he misses me as much as I miss them when I am away. 

I bet that is why he invented prayer.

I am glad you are home. I bet your little ducklings missed you as much as you missed them. It's good for everyone though. Sometimes you have to miss eachother to appreciate eachother all over again.
