Home- we are headed home today. It has been a week of family and love, with Hawaii as the beautiful backdrop. I have rejoiced in every day, and I am well aware of the good fortune that brought me here. With the boys grown and independent, we are very rarely all together. This trip was a mother's happiest dream. Before I left, I made a playlist of Hawaiian holiday music. Steve scrunched his face when he watched me hula to a slack key Silent Night, claiming it was not the holiday season yet. Ah, but it is. My holiday is anytime my family is with me.
This year it will be a bit more difficult to decorate, since I have shifted the location of all my furniture, to allow the adoption of Mom and Dad's stuff. There (honestly) is not one place to sit in the living room, except the piano bench. But the entertainment cabinet I brought from Detroit looks swell. Steve worries a little about me, but he is being a good sport. His suggestion, that I do not decorate due to the chaos, has fallen upon deaf ears. I would decorate him, if he would stand still. After the holidays, I will get a couch. And I had better watch some HGTV in that room to make some sense of my frenzy.
