So after leaving Festival several days before me, I get back in time for him to go out of town! Aaarrghhhh! And as often as he heads to the tiny town where he grows up and as mostly used to it as I’ve gotten—this time I was missing the HECK out of him!
I just kept expecting him to be there. Got home from my friend Cricket’s house last night and was startled that he wasn’t here, even though I knew he was gone, I was still surprised!
I got up this morning and saw his coffee mug and thought, Oh no, R forgot his coffee! I wondered what he was going to do for coffee at work. When he called at lunch I asked how his day at work was doing! LOL!
And Sarah Jane! I kept hearing her dog tags jingling. I kept reaching for her while I sat on the couch so I could pet her.
I am so happy they’re home.
Hey, I am darned grateful I have them both in my life to begin with.
Every time I wake up in the middle of the night and he’s right there and I can put my arms around him and, oh!, there is Sarah Jane cuddled up against his chest and all I can think—every night—is how lucky I am.
But not every night….
Which is why I am so happy he’s home.
And not only that, one of my best friends in the world—Will—is going to be here soon!
I am one lucky dude!
