As I sat down on the plane heading home this morning...

...I opened my book to begin reading...and a piece of paper fell out onto my lap.

It was one of those photo booth picture strips that I had taken in the mall with Owen and Audrey while in MN these past few days.

I looked at it, smiled and then sighed as I began to reflect on the incredible week that I had just spent with all of my Minnesota family....

Our goodbyes were said...heartfelt hugs were exchanged...and, now that I am home, I find myself walking around with a little empty space that only family can fill...

Missing you all so much...

Thank you for the joy.

XOXO

Ooh, that makes me ache for my nieces and nephews and my grandkids to come.

You make me happy and sad with this one.

Welcome home - and know that you are SOOOO lucky and so are your kids and grandkids. I wish you were my mom <3 (That's a heart!)

It is hard not being with them everyday. I live close and still their lives are so busy that I only see them every few weeks!

It must be so hard not seeing them every day.

I see 2 of my grandchildren most days so I'm so blessed. We also go on holiday with them for 2 weeks and when we get back home it seems so hard not seeing them all day.

No matter how often you see them, it's just never enough.

I know how you hate to leave them. Been there and done that. I remember one time when they lived in Louisanna... we slipped off and left them at 2 o'clock in the morning. I cried all the way home and they cried all the next day bacause they didn't get to tell me bye. I never did that again.
