Wow. Homesickness really just hits you out of nowhere! Having a bad day just makes you so much more vulnerable to it.
Today my car broke down and I had to have it towed to a mechanic. So now I’m waiting in a Starbucks that’s decorated for Christmas. First song played (I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas), and my heart jumped in my throat. Second song played (I’ll be Home for Christmas), and the tears rolled down my cheeks!
These are the little–and thankfully infrequent–heartaches one has to endure when living away from home.
