Home Again

Earlier this evening I returned from a 5-day sojourn up to visit my parents in New Jersey. Today’s drive lasted exactly 13 hours, (0700-2000) which is almost two hours longer than normal.

Dad is dealing with some pretty serious health issues and I wanted to go up and visit with him and mom. As usual, even though I’m almost 60, I transition into a teenager as I travel around the area where I grew up. So much has changed, but there is just enough to remind me that it once was home.

I have not blogged in almost a week and have read very few during the same time.  My apologies to the folks I read daily.  I’ll get caught up with blogging after I get caught up with my sleep.

It was good to see my parents.

It’s good to be home.

    I went home a few years ago and was sad that it was but it wasn’t the same as my memories led me to believe. But the emotions still stirred. And after all, nothing stays the same forever. Strength to you and your parents.
