A few things I've missed

Waking up together. Family meals. Holding hands. Chasing each other around the house. "Good morning" kisses. Long talks, late into the night. Resting my head on his shoulder. Playing footsie. Hugs. Laughing together. Tickle fights. Cooking his favorite meals. Curling up on the couch to watch favorite shows/movies. Strong arms wrapped around me. Watching him laugh and play with our son. Sitting in the passenger's seat. Leisurely walks in the cool of the evening. Serving breakfast in bed. Pillow fights. His fingers twirling the ends of my hair. Making coffee just the way he likes it. Surprise lunch dates. Whispering "I love you" before drifting off to sleep. Going to church as a family. Just being together.

I'm SO GLAD he's home!
