This photo is bathed in warm light as are my spirits. He came home today which immediately washes away all the petty worries I load myself down with while he is gone. He arrived home in time to watch the girls Fall play which was their best yet. I laughed until I cried. I am such an emotional wreck at these things. It's like in the movies when they show the parents reliving their kids as infants, toddlers, starting school blah blah blah. It happens to me and only gets worse the older they are. I will surely faint and/or be severely drunk at their weddings. I'm a mess just thinking about it! He also arrived home shortly after I realized someone used our debit card number and drained our checking acct. Three large transactions all today. Why do people do this? It's not like someone stole a chicken to make a stew for their hungry family, it's our entire Christmas budget. We will get our money back but only after the bank does a fraud investigation, which will take a few business days. So much for being careful using the card. We've never used it online..only the usual groceries, gas, an occasional restaurant.

I must stop thinking about it!

Three positives:

1. My family fills me with happiness.

2. Today Molly said Y'all like she's been saying it all her life. (we've lived here for nearly 6 months)

3. We used glitter this afternoon and I haven't seen one stray speck. Eight hands, five tubes of glitter and not one stray speck?!

Having a good family helps you through all the ups and downs of life but I sometimes wish things would be 'even'. I'm glad your hubby is home safe and sound! Enjoy this special time!
