Non Nobis...etc

We just got home and have collapsed in blessed relief into our humble abode. It is SOOOO good to be home. I'm not even going to THINK about all that is to come later in the month.

I was inordinately excited to be flying home today. Manchester never looked so welcoming!

It seems absolutely incredible to me when I think back over this week...I just can't take it in that we actually DID everything that we did. It was truly God's miraculous power that pulled us through...Things actually went pretty well.

You know what's REALLY mind-boggling? Yesterday- Friday- we drove over the Golden Gate Bridge. Today, as we descended into Manchester, we glimpsed the skyline of Boston in the distance. Wow. From sea to shining sea- literally! Except, the Pacific was pretty UN-shiny...and I couldn't quite glimpse the Atlantic...but STILL!

Umm, I feel very dumb. I saw you at church and it didn't even register that you were back. Sigh, sometimes I read and read, but just don't comprehend! :)

So here's a late welcome back. And don't think about later. Remember Claire, baby steps. And soon you too will be able to disable high explosives and say !@#$%^&* right along with Bill Murray, heh, heh, heh...

Oh how jealous I am that just yesterday you were in my town, driving over my beloved bridge.

Ho hum.

Okay, I really need to get my mind out of the gutter. The first time I read through Ryu's comment I thought he was calling you baby.

Anyway, glad you're back and got done everything you wanted. Sea to sea, you make me jealous.

Well, Claire, the song doesn't say "Shining sea to shining sea!" The Atlantic was probably shining, too. So you can count it. I declare it. ; )
