disappointment

I had planned on going home for thanksgiving, but it fell through at the last minute and I've spent a large part of the day feeling disappointed. I knew better than to get my hopes up, but I did anyways. I was looking so forward to coming home, getting my batteries recharged with the land of Kentucky before pure winter sets in, to time with Ben, to time with my parents, maybe with friends of mine that are spread around the country but were returning for the Thankful day. I'm thankful for having those things to have to go home to, but I wish that I had been able to enjoy them this week.

Alyssum,
I'm sorry you can't come home this week, I would have loved to see you (if you had time)! I am in the opposite position, sitting here in Lexington, hoping that everyone comes back. I miss you!
