We’re home

We just got home after 40+ hours of traveling. Perth to Sydney to Honolulu to LA to Dallas and finally home sweet home. There’s something calming when you walk through that front door. I came home to a sweet note from my grandkids, daughter-in-law and son welcoming us home and groceries bought by my other daughter-in-law. Thanks for wanting us home, we are glad we are here. For now we are just going to hunker down and get some rest. Tomorrow, I’ve got a little of Scarlett in me, we’ll be able to let the reality sink in, maybe even go to Senior grocery shopping. All of this has made me realize we are really old. Thanks for all of your prayers we felt them, we know that God has protected us. I find myself praying all the time. On the airplane is was a little different, not much talking just kind of people being to themself. You could just feel something, maybe tension. Some people totally masked and gloved out others no gloves or mask but definitely distancing themselves from others. I sat by this young girl from LA to Dallas, we didn’t talk the whole way but when we got up to deplane she ask if Dallas was my final destination, I said no we are going to Nashville. I told her we had been awake for about 36 hours and were exhausted. Maybe making an excuse for not talking during the trip, but trying to be polite, I ask her if she lived in Dallas. She said no she lived in St Petersburg, Florida. She, too, had a long time before she would be getting home. Then she told me she had flown out to California with her job just to find out she would be laid off tomorrow. I felt so bad that we didn’t talk during our journey. I found myself praying for her and wished I had ask her name so I could use her name when I prayed. So many people are hurting and I’m sure stressed out. Yes, our World Cruise was disappointing but in the scheme of things so minor. We are thankful that our family is healthy and we are safe. There are so many things to be thankful for so I’m going to get some sleep and “Tomorrow”

We send our love and I guess this will be our last blog.????
