*Shouts Mary as she soars into her house after a long trip all over the east coast of the U.S.!!! She drops her bags filled with new and wonderful treasures, not caring about damaging anything...BECAUSE after all, there is NOTHING she treasures more than the love of her life!!! She can hardly contain her excitement as she throws out her arms and prepares herself to fly into his arms...
THEN it dongs on her...
"OH WAIT!!! I FORGOT...
I'm NOT MARRIED!!!"
BUT... I REALLY AM HOME PEOPLE!!! I am soooo SORRY I haven't been bloggin...I have sooooo many things I ABSOLUTELY canNOT wait to share with you all...BUT first I want to tell you all about something I saw last night at the airport. When I got off the plane I got off first and got myself seperated from my family. As I was walking to the baggage claim I noticed a group of people waiting for someone to get off the plane. They were holding balloons and welcome signs and everyone was soooo thrilled that I just couldn't help but stay and see the reunion with whomever it was arriving home.
Unaware to the family, I stood in the middle of them and just watched as they began to get all excited when they finally caught a glimpse of him. It was a military man, dressed in a suit. I watched as his mother went running to him. They threw their arms around each other and hugged and hugged and hugged. This young military man held on so tightly to his mother, rocking her in his arms and tears streaming freely down his cheeks. I was mesmerized. Something inside of me began to tighten. Why was my eyes getting watery? I didn't even know them. Why was I feeling this way? What was this that I was seeing?!
I walked away before I really did start crying and the family thought I was CRAZY or something!!! I couldn't understand my emothional response to this scence because the guy wasn't EVEN CUTE!!! (For realZ!) I thought about it as I walked away, then I realized what I was veiwing...LOVE!!! Love between a mother and son! There is nothing greater than love. I'm NOT talking about romance...BUT LOVE!!! REAL, TRUE LOVE!!!
I came to the conclusion that no matter where I go, no matter what I see, no matter what I do, there is always ONE thing that will always bring me back to my Arizona home. That reason is not for a HUSBAND or because of our INCREDIBLEY wonderful summers, HAHA...but I will always be back for ONE REASON... and thats LOVE!!!
After every trip, I NEVER feel sad about going home. Not matter the weather, the attractions, the sights...NOTHING can compare to my family, my church, my friends... you all mean the world to me...more to me than you'll ever know!!!
Love will ALWAYS bring me home!!! :)
