For the past two weeks I have had the pleasure of having my mom staying with us. She and my dad live in another country (a far away country) and we do not get many opportunities to spend time with them. This year we were able to have my mom come to stay with us for two weeks and we had a VERY productive time, big fires, good food, and lots of singing and laughs. She left this week and I miss her already. I know it will be a long time before I see her again. I am grateful for the time we had together.
