My daughter and her hubby have been in the USA for most of this month and arrived back in Australia last night. They are spending a couple of days resting in Melbourne before flying home to Perth on Tuesday.
This may seem strange as we don't see each other all that often (they are very busy people) nor even speak on the 'phone more than perhaps once a week. She and I do keep in touch via Facebook and also play scrabble via the internet as well.
She kept us informed via Facebook with photographs and stories of their doings over in the US so we knew where they were etc., and that they were OK but......it's just knowing they are back on Australian soil again that makes me so happy.
Does this just make me a silly old woman or is it normal for us to miss people more when they are away from their home country. Don't get me wrong. I am so glad they had such a wonderful time and all went well with them...it's just that the sound of her voice when she rang me this morning filled my heart with so much happiness. Thank you for making that call and....
Welcome home both of you. xxx
