Absence – #Romantic Tuesday

Lonely without you

Anticipate your return

Absence grows my love

The past weekend, I was left alone, with my kids, both human, feline and avian.

Hubby Dearest went away for a few days with friends. A well-deserved break after a hectic few years.

And I was reminded of a Peanuts cartoon strip I read when I was younger: “Absence makes the heart grow fonder… so I’ve packed your bags.”

It made me giggle then, and still now, and yet it holds a lot of truth.

When theย one you love isn’t thereย with you, you feel their absence keenly. Yet when you do love someone, you need to let them go sometimes to appreciate their worth.

And I welcomed him back with open arms, and a sleepy smile ( he arrived at 1 am!) most glad to have my love back home with me.

    Well good thing you missed him and didn’t tell him to extend his trip ๐Ÿ˜‰ Always nice to be “alone” but having the loved one back home again is the best.

    Your verse speaks straight to my heart. My husband and I spend more time apart than together (neither of us is in jail, don’t panic!) … and we literally yearn and crave for the time we do have. But even so, the Peanuts line resonates too ๐Ÿ˜‰
