there's no place like home
She's home, she's home, she's home! Safe and sound, and happy. I knew Laura wouldn't really be ready to come home. She didn't even call us until her last night in Texas, just a text from her last Friday saying "I'm having so much fun!" She could've stayed, and they would've kept her... but if you want to go back, you have to come home first, so here she is. Home. With lots of stories... and a few new experiences. I am thankful that I was brave enough to let her go... I am thankful that she was brave enough to want to go- and brave enough to follow through. I don't mind my children going here and there... but it is a full, complete feeling when we are all together in the same room once again.
