Today I was reminded of how comforting it is to go back to my parents' house. We haven't had water at our house the past couple days because of plumbing issues so I packed the kids up and spent some quality time with my Mom. I visit my Mom and Dad all the time, but there is something so wonderful about taking a shower in the home you grew up in, with the same warm towels that smell the way they always did. And to nap on her couch, under quilts you grew up snuggling under, and eat a dinner she prepared. I feel so relaxed right now. Nightie-night.
