Today I am grateful to be home after having been on vacation for a week. I am looking forward to sleeping in my comfortable bed, using my own bathroom, and having all my clothes to choose from, not just the few I packed with me.
Don't misunderstand, the vacation was wonderful and I am incredibly grateful for that as well. We had a fabulous time in South Haven, Michigan, and the weather cooperated to make it a lovely beach vacation; doing much else other than playing in the sand and in the lake would have been quite uncomfortable because of the heat and humidity. But, being a lover of heat and humidity, I was in my element; I love how the humidity slows things down a bit and makes everything feel warm. I run on the cold and dry side a bit, so to be in the humidity is to be, finally, comfortable.
I'm also grateful we got to spend so much time with my parents and sister, a sentiment I am sure the kids would echo wholeheartedly. Though they live only seven minutes away, having them there for the whole day, beginnings, endings, and everything in between, was a real treat for the kiddos. I am so grateful they have gotten to know their family so well and have so many happy memories with them.
And last, but not least, I am grateful for sleep. Here I come!
Have a wonderful night!
