Getting Nowhere?

Late start. Unexplained car noises.
Missed exits...
Not the easiest of road trips this Friday.

"We're on our way home.
We're going home."
John Lennon & Paul McCartney 
"Two of Us"

But oh, our Saturday morning...
Under the Japanese Magnolia and the towering oaks,
my childhood home cocooned us.
Sitting quietly,
with my father,
my husband
and my daughter
in this special place,
for a few precious hours
was worth all that it took this weekend
to find our way home.
