Holes in a Tree

Leaves


I can't think of a time that I was happier to be pulling into our driveway again.  It's been a long few days, like time stood still while we were away Tuesday to Friday.  I feel like I do not want to leave this place again for a long time.  Winter is coming, of course, so that will help tremendously.  I always count on time away, even a day, to give me appreciation for the daily routines.  This trip, especially, took a lot out of us.  Laurel wasn't rested, Willow and Roan were spent, and I was just beyond ready to be home.  Mike kept us going and saw us through what might have been a giant family tantrum last night over some canned peaches.  No one wants to be grumpy or say that their Thanksgiving wasn't all that great, but that is what happens sometimes.  We are on the other side of it now, and are happily looking forward to the first week of Advent.  Carrie and I are making Advent wreaths this morning and I am so excited.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
