Ahhhh... the comforts and joys of home! I have been away for what seems like an eternity, visiting with family and friends, adventuring with my little guy, preparing for another year of homeschooling, but I missed my fortress. I missed the mountains, I missed my lovelies, I missed the hounds, I missed my palatial gardens (hee hee), but most of all I missed my man. Sometimes I lose sight of how important he is to me. We have spent so many stressful times apart, with him deployed to war zones and me on the homefront, that now that he is home... I forget to miss him. I forget how sad I am in his absence. I forget what a special gift God has given me in my husband. So this week I will clean the house the way he likes it and make him something special to eat... a wildberry crisp perhaps. Just a little something to show the "Duke," that I love him.
