It has been almost 15 months since I moved to America from Ireland and today I get to go home and visit the family and friends that I left behind. I’ve spoken briefly before about the bond I have with my younger brother who has special needs and with whom skype chats will never be able to replace face-to-face conversation. Oh how I’ve missed being able to connect with him.
I’ve missed my dog, my first ever puppy-dog Charlie. I’ve missed seeing my nephew grow from a 1 year baby to a near 2 and half year (holy terror my all accounts) toddler. I’ve missed friends getting married, other friends having babies, moving graduations and more birthdays that I can count. I even missed Christmas.
Yesterday I came home.
