What is there about having your kids close to home that makes a mom of grown kids so happy? Within this week, I’ll get to see all three of them and celebrate my youngest’s birthday, have a few meals together, and know we are on the last leg of my middle daughter’s oversees education. This morning at 4:30, my son arrived home from living two years in Florida. He finished his school in December and still has many hours to fly before he will have a commercial job. He decided he could get that done here just as easily, so he has rented a house outside of Austin, which is just a few hours from home. By the end of summer, they’ll all be back in Texas and that makes me smile. I guess you never quit being mom. I’m even glad the granddog is home.
