Rocky Mountain Sober


I am at home. Praise God.

I love home.

I love the Denver Airport (this from a person who thought building that silly tent out on the prairie was insane!)

I love that my flight landed at about 8:30 p.m. and I got to see the sunset over the rocky mountains. The beach is fab, but I am in love with my home scenery - the mountains.

I love that I got to take a bath in my own bathtub.

I love that in this arid climate, my hair is fluffed back up after a week of FLAT, FLAT, FLAT.

There is so much to write, but I am utterly and totally exhausted.

I will lay my head down on my own pillow and gratefully go to sleep.

Tonight when I got to Denver, I experienced familiar emotions, because I am always glad to come home - no matter where I go. But tonight I had a new one.

I am so grateful that I live in this place, so far away from my family. Not because I am far away from them, but because I struck out a long long time ago and made my own place in this world. And I really do love it. It is not fabulous like others, but I don't care. Fabulous is in the eye of the beholder and my bathtub and bed are totally awesome tonight.

I will write more coherently tomorrow.

I am so tired now I just actually posted this on the wrong blog, but luckily could cut and paste it here.

I love my daughter with all my heart, but she is her own independent spirit. She needs to be away from her family, for exactly the reasons you mentioned here.

Makes our times together short and sweet...

I'm glad you were awake enough to cut and paste......in your own home.

Welcome back--to your own home, Mary C.

I am struggling to find my place in the world today...it is good that you have found yours. I will pray for guidance to find mine also. Welcome Home Sweet Home!

Glad that you made it home to your mountains--your own Rocky Mountain High. And to have that sunset greeting you must have been a real treat. Take care and rest up from your vacation!
