Blog Your Blessing Sundays: Homecoming...

I'm not sure if I've mentioned how much I love my Sue... my family... my pets... my home.

Like all healthy couples, we argue... heck, we've had some verbal slobber-knockers... but in the end, it's always love and hugs.

Why I bring this up is a blessing that literally occurred to me on Friday on my commute home...

My commute, via public transit, is about an hour each way... stretching an eight-hour day into a ten hour day... often longer... and my job, though computer related, usually has me lifting things (for example, printers... which the ones we use are about fifty-pounds each,) parts, instruments, and all... then there's the internal stuff which has me diving under desks, working with wires and all... and of course, like all computer folks, hours of sitting at a desk as well... usually watching blue-bars advance across a screen as software installs and/or copies. one hour (plus a bit) to come in to do that.

...then one hour to get home...

The bright point, as I would assume it is for most folks, is indeed, walking in the door.

First of all, "The Boys" (our two dogs) greet me... not with barking (they recognize my "sounds" coming up to and at the door,) but with tails wagging and acting as if my entry into the house heralds the dawning of a new and brighter existence for all of humanity. If non-dog owners wonder why us dog owners are such passionate people about our pets, try coming into a house with this absolute unconditional love and affection... just 'cuz you're there.

Next is Sue... usually with a warm hug, a kiss, a brief inquiry about my day, and then usually the announcement of the evening's meal.

Sadly, the kidollo, being a tween, is usually less then spectacular with a quick greeting followed by a laundry list of things she needs fixed, done, or money for... but hey, she's a kid... and really, this isn't usually the only thing... she occasionally gives me news of her school day, an update on her friends, and as a rule, is a generally happy soul.

So, coming in... with limited exceptions, consists of a lot of warmth, love, attention, and effection.

...that, somehow, makes the day seem that much more worthwhile.

As of present, I've never really been away from Sue (or home) more than a day or two tops, so my reference may not seem all that spectacular... but bear with me if you will because...

My blessing today is coming home...

I realize there are people who's lives take them away from home for weeks, months, even years at a time... but when you see the blessing of even a ten-hour absence, it does remind one of the sweetness of returning... and how, for those people, it must literally be ten-fold as sweet.

This doesn't take away from my own "homecomings" though... which is something I believe most of us experience in some fashion... and it is an unbridled, if often overlooked blessing.

Have I mentioned how much I love my home?
