We've had lots of company during the last month. It's been good. But now that they've all gone home it seems extra quiet around the house. I'm feeling a sense of peace that can only be explained by the fact that others are praying for us... for me.
Having my parents visit was extra special because I felt like a little girl again in some ways... and loved... and totally accepted. You see, it doesn't matter how old you are. You still need your mom and dad.
I always feel so responsible with the need to be strong. It was nice to be a daughter again. I sometimes forget. I feel like a mother often. A wife ... for sure. But not always a daughter. I have the best parents in the world.
Last week I got to relish in it again though. We had so much fun even in the midst of serious health concerns.
|Hanging out having coffee|
|Mom making a wonderful pork tenderloin dinner!|
|Jenni popped in from time to time too.|
|Nicky liked that!|
|A highlight was going to The European Bistro. Authentic Hungarian food. The owner, Anna, is from Hungary. She kind of flirted with my dad, but Mom said she didn't mind. Edd said if someone flirted with me, he'd deck him! :-)|
|They had Bull's Blood, a Hungarian wine Dad enjoyed when visiting Hungary a few years back.|
|and a Hungarian white wine ...|
|The desserts were super deeelish...|
|We even put up the Christmas tree though it's not decorated yet.|
The week is over, but the memories are still with me. I felt like I was nurtured. I remembered that I am a daughter. I remembered that I have the best parents in the world and that I am loved.
