Mom (Ruth) is able to have her own place. She cares for herself and she has all her children still living. She was able to have all of them under the same roof with her to celebrate the blessed event. When I spoke with her on the phone that evening of her birthday she told me how wonderful it has been. She was having a good day.. And was able to make memories and enjoy making them.
I didn't require or demand a lot of attention when my husband was gone. After all, he was there to spend time with his mom. It seemed to me that the days were drawn out and the house was quiet. Without him and his crazy ways.. Home just wasn't home without his presence there.
So yes, even if it was less than a week... I got butterflies in my stomach on the day he was coming home. I wrote in my Facebook status on November 10th, something like.. Have you ever been so excited and anxiously waiting to open your Christmas presents on Christmas morning???
Well, that is the way that I felt knowing he was coming home. Waiting at the gate for him and feeling like a teenage girl waiting to see just a glimpse of him coming down the walk way. And then suddenly I get a glimpse of him.. Jumping up and down telling the boys I see him. Gabriel already had me going saying he saw him a few Time before.. But this was it for real..
He comes out of the ribbon drawn walk way and I wrap my arms around him and kiss him.. Yes, this is where I belong in his arms and him by my side. So if I appear excited or like an anxious teenager.. That is the way I feel with him.. My soul mate.. My best friend.. And there isn't another that could make me feel the way he makes me feel..
