What a rare treat to have extended family visit us this weekend. We had a wonderful visit with my grandparents and aunt & uncle who were traveling on their way to Nova Scotia for a vacation.
Their visit brought up that by now familiar tension in me. The struggle between the desire to see family more and the desire to live right where I live, fulfilling the purposes and plans for our lives here. Realizing it's possible to love your life and who you've become independent from your family of origin and yet miss them in the same thought.
