Leaving the Light On For You

Warmth of Home

My iTunes: Still Fighting It by Ben Folds

I wanted to post about missing my better half. This image was taken at a friends home and I love the warmth of it. It is so calming to me. I have been doing some traveling with our kids while he has been busy working hard for the past couple of weeks. We are having fun but we are also feeling the distance away from him. Not a night goes by without us praying for him and us wondering what he is up to during the day. I just wanted to let him know that we are thinking of him and missing him. I look forward to us all being together again.

See you soon!

We love you,
Anna, Sadie, Jack and Sam

Tremendous. But you know what they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder! Think of how nice it'll be when you're all back together! =]

Have a splendid week!

Anna said...

I recognize that lantern...I have one similar to it that Motherskylark gave me when I left :-(

I know how much you guys are missing John! But I know also that he's missing you guys just as much if not more.

I like it, it's almost like a painting.

Sounds like you really have a great relationship with your husband and kids. That's awesome.

Glad you enjoyed the Bride images.

The time will pass quickly, Anna, but it is hard to be apart, isn't it?

I love this picture Anna. It looks like a painting. I trust that the separation won't be much longer and I am so glad you could be with friends suring this time.
So glad to be back in the Blogdom realm again.

beautiful colour, beautiful lighting....loved your plane photos too which looked otherwordly to me.

I can relate.....i often feel a bit disjointed when my whole brood isn't under one roof. we have had a summer of hellos and goodbyes....right now my daughter is away for two weeks at camp. I'm sure she's having the time of her life, but our home isn't the same without her. And, as a mom I feel a piece of me missing.

My husband was away most of May and June and it was very stressful on many levels.

take care.....autumn will bring back togetherness.....
