Safe and Warm
I am with family and close friends. My cell phone has been off. I have checked email very irregularly. My days are filled with cooking, visiting, fragrances of candles and food. There is music in the air, laughter, humming, and fun.
Today, I left this safe place, out into the world to buy more groceries. It was like another planet. Reality. Cars. Money. Strangers.
I couldn't wait to get back to the warmth of home. Family. What is familiar. Safe.
My mind wonders.
Just a few more days, our son goes back to the east, with his girl friend.
I like my life, it is good.
But this cocoon is so safe, so full of love.
Gratefulness fills my heart for times like this when all I need is all I want.
