The Homecoming

Panasonic LX3, ISO 80, 1/320, f2.8
It's a very happy day!!!!
After 9 and a half weeks of being hospitalized, my father came home.
I picked him up at the rehab, and Mom came down to the door to greet him and welcome him home.

What a roller coaster these past few months have been. We honestly thought this day might not ever come. There were many low days. At one point, I thought God must have a very strange sense of humor. But, one thing's for sure.............God said "Nah.......not yet!"
Welcome home Dad!!!!!!!!!!
