Grama and Gramps "Mission" made it back to American Soil on Friday... and headed home to the place that I has been my 'home' since birth...
Wow - you may look at this and see just another house.
I look at this and am flooded with countless memories of a lifetime of
*comings and goings
*entering and exitings
*pictures on the porch
*learning volley ball from my big sis
on the front lawn
*learning the coolest basketball 'fake' move
from my big brother in the driveway
*many sleepovers on the tramp in the back
*neighborhood conglomerations concocting all
sorts of games and adventures
around the premises
*running in the door with exciting news
*making it to the door before the tears
fell with sad news
*feeling the unmistakable cling of steam hit you at the door and knowing it was 'canning night'
*seeing the soothing blue christmas lights surround the beautiful white tree in the window on a serene winter night and knowing you truly were 'home for Christmas'
*beautiful sunrises from the kitchen window
*exotic sunsets from the front porch
*family movie nights
*late night talks
*amazing home cooked meals
It's what life is all about.
Thank you, mom and dad, for telling me with your words, but more importantly for teaching me with your actions.
I love you
