Five Minute Friday: Whole

Has it really been two weeks since I posted? I tried so hard to keep up with this on line life of mine but I got too busy with real life and the importance of what was/is going on in my family so I took a long break. I feel more refreshed now.

I am back in town, still trying to put my house back together after being gone so long. Posting will continue but it will not be every day. I love blogging but it is becoming all-consuming. Since this blog is about finding a balance that doesn't seem right. I hope you'll continue to follow along!

It's time for Five Minute Friday! Click over to The Gypsy Mama for instructions if you would like to participate! (You totally should!)

Today's prompt is: Whole

5-minute-friday-1 After a few days of being home and getting back to the craziness that is my life I have realized that a part of me feels very empty. That part of me that is filled with the laughter and inside jokes of my family. That part of me that feels just right beside my sister talking about pregnancy and babies and the future. That part of me that saw my new niece for the first time. That part of me that smiles as I watch them play and interact with my kids. That part of me that recognizes this warm, safe place as home.

I was in New Mexico for nearly three weeks. Always when I go home I am ready to leave for MY home by the end of the trip. Mostly because I like my routine and the life we have created here. While I still treasure my life, family and friends here, this departure from home was measurably more difficult. I felt a deep weight on my chest as I said goodbye to my newest niece, the brother I saw for only a few days after two years of separation, and the family I can never seem to get enough of.

There is a part of me that wishes I could combine the two lives I feel I lead. The life I live everyday and the life I have to visit and then leave behind. If only it were possible I know I would feel whole and not always have a half-empty feeling. If only.
