All kidding aside, my Zoe has been absent on the home front lately. I miss her terribly. And, I am celebrating her independence and zest for life. She said to me this morning, as I was bemoaning her extended absence this Labor Day weekend, "Mom, I'm a teenager and I'm happy!" How lucky am I? She's right. She's healthy, happy, not in any trouble and loving life. So, I celebrate this today.
And seriously, if she doesn't return, I do have a wonderful room available!
