Somethings missing~

Ok, this is kind of a "sappy" post but thought I would share it anyways :) Today is the first morning in a very long time that I woke up and was actually cold ( yes, us Texans get cold when it is in the 60's :).

I got up, let the cat and dog out and decided to open the windows! After our very long, hot summer this is a treat.

As I felt the cool air in the house and smelled the familiar smell of Fall coming, I thought "somethings missing" and then it hit me ~ it was my kids.

It doesn't happen often as this transition to adulthood with all the guys has gone very well, but that was definitely an "empty nest" moment :)

Oh Mom...we're just a phone call away. All you have to do is provide dinner. ;) Just kidding. I love you.

I still wake up expecting to wake up in my room at home so you're not alone momma!

I knew you clicked your heels a little too soon. Wait until those grandbabies start to come to see Gramps and Granny. I can just see you setting out those Fall decorations, plus those you buy especially for them. We had better wait a little longer Elayne. Those REAL pumpkins will cook. Looking forward to those cool days also. And you know those boys still get that I wish I were at home right now feeling. (Well every once in a while).
