February 24th ~ Going Home

A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the
mind as well as the body.  It also has to have Sniff and Arvid to be home for me. 
Where we love is home- home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts...

It was good to be in Florida for a few days.  We enjoyed the company of
 family and friends, and of course of warmer temperatures.  We did a little 
work and enjoyed many of our favorite places, but as always it is also
 very good to go home.  Home is where Sniff, Arvid and I are together. 
Sniff when he was in Florida
 I know I am excited to see Sniff's little face and to hear his "voice"again.
Missed him very much and though I know he is well cared for,
 I can't wait to go home and pick him up even if he just let's me 
carry him for a few seconds.   It's better than nothing.

Sniff spent a total of almost 4 months in Florida.  One day we will take
 him back and on that day Florida will be home again.  For now our
 apartment in Fort Lauderdale is just memories of mostly Brutus
 and some of Shadow.  One day we look forward to making
lasting memories there with our little Sniff Sniff as well.

Sniff Sniff is home in Branson waiting for us.  There all 
our memories made are with him. We're coming home Sniff.

No more walks along the beach for now.  No more Kilwins for a while,
and no more mornings watching the boats go by.  It think I'm nostalgic. Go figure.
  All I wanted to do since coming was to go back home, now that we are I am sad,
but I can't wait to see Sniff and hear his voice.  I love him and miss him.  Happy again.

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do,
 but how much love we put in that action....
