While I’ve Been Away

Friday, January 17th – Friday, January 24th

So here I am at a medical clown conference in Dallas, Texas, away from my precious flamly for eight days this week, and it is my daughter –with Daddy’s help– who is heart-beating the drum of longing the loudest. Here are some of the gifts I am receiving:

FRIDAY 1/24:

OK so enough’s enough. After an indescribable week, my son got in trouble at school, my daughter’s performance in class has completely shit the bed, and my mom is having emergency surgery!

.

I don’t even know how Dear Hubsand is holding it together

.

I am taxiing to the runway on the flight home, with no regrets, connected with my brother and my sister (& Auntie!), full of inspiration and possibility, firm in the understanding that above all else what matters is FAMILY.

Here is Mom in Her Glory just before emergency surgery:

BASTA with this trip.

HOME already!!

Here comes Sugar.
