63 Gallons of gas....

I just had to get home to see my kids. I missed them so much. So I will be using a total of 63 extra gallons of gas an an extra 16 hours on the road to be able to see them at home for two days. I was in Gulf Shores Al this past weekend and will be leaving this Thursday for Northport, AL.

Last night when I drove in my kiddos were waiting in the circle for me. Parker came running up and jumped into my arms and Anaïs would not let go of me. Any miss givings about spending all the extra money on gas (that I do not have to spare) were forgotten as soon as I saw their faces. Worth every penny.

Amen to that! We met in Alabama, and I purchased one of your "Daily Series" pieces (I am not, however, the worthless hag who gave you a fake check--that was f-o-u-l and there's a special place in hell reserved just for her!). We talked about Obama and your art work and my writing. It was such a pleasure to meet you and hear about your creative process. But it was even more meaningful to me that you're a mom, like me, who was missing her kids, even as you worked hard to give them the things they need. I blogged about missing my kids while I was on that very same trip, in that very same city as you. You're right: Every dime/nickel/penny wasted is worth it to see those beautiful faces. I arrived home to a "Welcome Home Mom!" sign on the garage door. And that is priceless.

THank you for the beautiful artwork and the great conversation!
