I am hopeful to catch up on my blog to recount our time together with family and friends and to make up for other lost time. I knew it before I left, but it's clearer than ever now that we are home. I am wasting precious moments chasing things that don't matter. It's time to get back on track. And back to the blog. It's a gift to have the chance to start over. If only everyone were so lucky . . .
