Welcome Home

It was strange being home for Christmas for such a short time. I’ve always had plenty of time to take in the smell of the salt marsh and enjoy 3 or 4 servings of greasy rice. But this year was different. I had but 4 days at home. After moving almost 3000 miles away, it was great to just be home for moments.

I tried to make the most of every minute: Sleeping little (except for that nap after opening presents) and chatting much.  In-between many of my hellos filled with hugs, I gladly heard others say ‘welcome home’. ‘we missed ya’ or ‘how’ve you been.’

It was such a strange sensation, though…

Being welcomed to the place I’ve always been.

Welcome Home

    You gave everyone new pep in their step,a little broadness in their smile,pride that makes a dad’s girth a little bigger.(and I being 10 hours away could detect all this thro the phone.) You are amazing and bring great joy to all!!!!God made holidays for “homecomings” I love you.
