Yeah, This Is Home

I love being home…even with all its quirks and flaws.

Quick hellos and long goodbyes
Giggling with Kendra in the grocery store
Playing guitar with Rusty on the “uncool” side of the stage
Trina saying, “A, let’s do something epic today.”…then getting muddy on our adventure
Reflective journal entries
Being called "Alicia" numerous times
Looking at fluffy orange prom dresses with Alicia
SLR camera shopping with my Daddy
Looking back on a day and just smiling
Cutting out endless piles of snowflakes
Frozen Yogurt on a day that’s freezing with my Mom
Lunch with Grandma
Asking questions and not just getting answers, but dialogue as well
Long walks in the rain (puddle jumping included) with Robert
Spending Christmas Eve with Alicia and her mom playing card games
Watching “I Love Lucy” episodes with Larissa at 2 in the morning
Almost getting shoved off the stage
Showing up to babysit in Pjs and with wet hair
Late nights at worship team practice
Learning to play Chess from Danny
Meaningful conversations
Last minute packing, cleaning, and doctor appointments
Lots of love and truth
Hugs goodbye with the words “Thank you for being in my life. I love you.”
