My kids are in Mississippi with their Dad for Spring Break. To say that I miss them is the understatement of the century. My Captain is doing his best to keep me busy, and keep my mind diverted.
But even when a mother’s mind is diverted, her heart remains constantly turned to her kids. It doesn’t daunt him, though; he’s determined to keep me distracted until Varmint and Critter return. He’s a rescuer by nature. He has to fix things.
So he is keeping me engaged in other things.
We’ve gone furniture shopping. We’ve gone to a nice restaurant. We’ve done yardwork together on beautiful spring days. We’ve shared meals at the firehouse.
Tomorrow he is taking me sailing with our good friend Cupcake. We’ll be on the Severn River and Chesapeake Bay all day. It will be lovely, and a heck of a lot of laughter and fun.
A few thoughts spring to my mind:
1) Cupcake is a good friend to take us out sailing.
2) My Captain is a caring, compassionate husband.
3) My Captain looks scrumptious on a sailboat, and I cannot wait to see him pulling lines and heaving and ho-ing whenever we ‘Come About’.
4) I miss my kids.
Motherhood: A kick in the pants.
