Our home is quiet. I miss the noise, the toys, the food prep, the fun...of having a full house. There were SO many moments when I would just stop whatever I was doing and grab one of my grandchildren, hug and kiss them (except for Gav, who is two, and very independent), and express my love for them. We don't have nearly enough time with all our children, our time together is precious. Yesterday when we said "goodbye" to the last of the departers, we went inside, viewed the chaos, quickly found some left behind items, sat on the couch, and then the tears came. Poor Pat, he misses everyone so very much. I am grateful for the full house we had, even if it was only for a short time.
