Home Sweet Home

irma

I have not been here since October, I think. I was very ill and landed in the hospital. Living alone, I could not go home to recuperate. While looking into options for assistance, my dear friend insisted I come stay with her in her lovely home. I enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and being waited on and pampered.

I have been home since Monday and it feels so good to be back in my humble home and to have internet. Even when my husband was alive and we went on vacations, I felt that way. There is no place like home.

Welcome back! I had noticed you hadn't been here in a while. Glad to hear your health is improved. I know what you mean about Home Sweet Home. Whenever we return and I walk in my door I feel that way! My house is just perfect for me.

Yes, home sweet home, but to have a friend like that is a wonderful blessing.

We're glad you're back! You're a lucky girl to have such a nice friend; I'm glad it worked out well for you. I hope you can take it easy, until you've completely recovered. :)

So nice to have you back. It's always good to get home and sleep in your own surroundings.

My sentiments exactly. My DH keeps telling me the reason we go away is so we can appreciate what we have. Well, I do appreciate what I have and would prefer to stay and enjoy it. :-)))

What a wonderful friend you have! Glad you are feeling better. I know what it's like to have a prolonged illness. This past summer was not the best for me. Nothing serious so I don't like to complain. Just an inconvenience. Spent a good part of it in my favorite chair. At least I was able to stay at home..

Welcome back and enjoy your surroundings.

I feel the same way you do. My DH's brothers wife passed away and we were up in ND since last Friday. We left after the service today and when we got home I said I was glad we were home. He said me too.

" it feels so good to be back in my humble home and to have internet"

ain't that the truth! I was in the hospital in Aug for a week. Couldn't wait to get outa there. What a horrible place to be confined! I called it 'prison'. Horrible beds and food and a tiny TV way up on the wall across the room from my eyeballs... all I wanted to do was go home to my own bed, food, tv/computer and most of all - my furgirl! I'm sure she was so confused!

I'm glad you're back home now in your own home!

Soooooo. True. We went on our first vacation ever this past summer. A cruise. I was so happy to get home and take a shower with decent water pressure again. Nothing like sleeping in YOUR bed, on YOUR sheets, and YOUR pillow. Bliss.

Glad to hear you are feeling better.

Welcome back to your home and your internet 'home' here at the KT! I hope you will remember that you are still *recuperating* and not over-do.

It's great good news to hear that you're quietly rejoicing in being back home, Irma.

And how thankful you are to your friend for having given you such thoughtful care for those two months plus while you were recuperating.

Would you do us a favour, please? When you relate to that kindly friend again, please tell her that many of your cyber-friends here are deeply thankful for her generously offering you a place to stay and attentive care for that extended period when your need was great.

Good wishes for as much healing as possible as you proceed on your life's journey, Irma, and some prayers offered on your behalf.

Oh, I couldn’t agree with you more Irma, there is no place like home, but what a wonderful friend you have to care for you like that. I’m glad you’re better and back with the group!

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, my friend is a very kind caring person. If not for her, I would have remained in the hospital longer. Not once during my stay with her, did she make me feel unwanted or an imposition. I wish there was some way to repay her. I am truly blessed.

I'm very sorry to hear that you have been so ill. What a wonderful friend you have; she sounds like a gem. You are right, though, there is no place like home and I am glad you are back at home and back at the KT!
