today i wait....

i wait for my hubby to make it back home safely
while flying through the storms in the south
~
i wait for son on so many levels and in so many ways
but
mostly
to also make it back home without any issues
and
now
i wait for new friends to arrive
~
friends i have only known through blogging and whose eyes i have yet to look into. friends who will warm my heart and make me laugh. friends who will feed my soul.
~
friends
who love life as much as i do
~
friends
who are willing to take chances
~
terribly lucky i am
as
i wait
