be it ever so humble..........

....there is no place like home......I was never one who like to travel very far and be away from home very long, and the older I get, the stronger that feeling is..........recently we went to Chicago to watch the Cubs play, my husband's FAVORITE team.......I enjoyed the trip more than I thought I would, Chicago is a beautiful city, love the Cubs, and that is the city I lived the first 10 years of my life.......even at that, when I stepped off that bus and we got in our car to go home, oh my gosh, I was one happy girl.........just the little things seemed so much better....I appreciated them more.......the small town where we live, our chickens and cows out the back door,  my own coffee and coffee cup...."my" seat on the couch, my books, my bed, home cooked meals, and my girls and their families........as Laura Ingalls Wilder said, "home is the nicest word there is"..........till next time....smiles, Linda
