Reunion…

The leaves are revealing signs of a coming autumn…. but the skies clinch the dog days of a scorching summer… Patiently…with eyes on our anxious backpacks…boots… we wait.  Talks of campfires… whispers from a crowded tent and warm bags.   Our recent days..consumed with school and homework… practice and football games… new acquaintances…old friends….  

Meanwhile… I feel as though I’m home…from a very long trek…tired…worn….hobbled… But rested…. revived… Learning what it means to be….. Home…. 

The address is simply a place to park the truck.. unload the stuff…get out of the weather…. A home is that place where arms…and hearts… are open….  and where we retreat with the same… each day.. each night….

The schedule is filling… each weekend.. busy… friends…. dinners…. Bellefest…. Dallas….. Halloween…. Just need a cool weekend…. a long hike…. and quick backpacking adventure…

But today is Tuesday… all I can think about is the kids coming home…
