Tonight will be officially six nights without my children, but I will be getting them after church tomorrow so that I can take them to the fireworks in the evening. It has been strange to not have them here, their voices not echoing through the house. I miss their laughter, their noise, their bustle. I’ve gotten a great deal accomplished, especially today, but I will be so very happy to have them home!
Molly has been extra affectionate since they have been gone, and has made simple household chores take a little longer because she insists on extra cuddles. I’m ok with that, though. We’ve been keeping each other company!
Just a few more hours!
