Returining in Good Order
Anytime I return home after being some distance away the same thought comes to my mind just as my home comes into sight. I think to myself, “ Good, the house is still there.” Then I think the same when I drive closer and see the horses, “Good, the horses are still there. This doesn’t occur when I return from town or other short trips; just when I return from a road trip.
We all know of stories where people returned from a trip to find their home burned to the ground or that their animals have died or escaped.
We recently returned from a jaunt to Portland and as those thoughts came into my mind, my wife actually spoke them. I guess it’s a universal fear and relief.
