Homeward Bound

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.

~Barbara Bush

One more day to go and I will be flying to Chicago for a few weeks. It’s my Mom’s 96th birthday next week; she has no idea I’m coming! I look forward to spending lots of time with my family. I will be offline for a while and hope to get caught up with everybody when I return.

I can see why you're eager to see them all. Don't forget to pack your googly eyes and whoopie cushion. Looks like they'll be appreciated!

Have a great time. And give your mom an extra kiss from me. Someone who raises such happy people is a gem in my book!

Blessings, Debbie
