Things are back to normal? What do I mean?
I no longer will keep all doors compulsively locked at all times day and night.
I will not have to check the locked doors 3 or more times before going to bed.
I can put the letter opener near the bed back where it belongs.
My habit of staying out and about till 3:00 in the afternoon, returning long before dark, and not leaving once it has become dark can be dropped.
I can choose to continue collecting the trash on Friday night for pick-up Saturday morning or give the job back to hubby.
The BIG coffee pot will be put back into service.
Maybe I'll ride my scooter again.
There will be sounds other than a T.V. in the house again. I'll hear the "dings" of the chat room and the sounds of blog videos being played coming from another computer.
The garage space is back to the way it was - - - two scooters and one RAV4.
Mr. Bert, our kitty, has his favorite person back to feed him and put him to bed on the back porch where he plays in "his jungle" (the plants out there) all night.
There will again be the prayers of TWO people rising from this household.
There is a special sense of "presence" in a home where love lives. That "presence" has returned.
I am grateful that my prayers for "safe riding" were answered.
