Ever since you have moved away from Alpena, being at your house has not felt like "home". That feeling of going home is normally based around where you grew up - where your roots are. And it has to be a place that you go to frequently enough to feel like you have memories there. A safe nest.
This past visit with you, I really felt at home. It was really, really nice. Beyond that, I felt absolutely spoiled! That didn't hurt either. ;)
Thank you so much for everything, Mama. Jeff, too. You are the best parents I could ever have, and I feel so lucky.
