Wherever you may wander, wherever you may roam, there is no place like home.
Yesterday I filled the frig and prepared my son's favourite supper in preparation for his return tonight. Although we have vacationed overseas, it will be his first return in two years. Needless to say the cats and I are eagerly anticipating his return.
The sensation of falling into the past is not that unlike coming home for the holidays. Patrick O'Brian
Home is not a place it is a feeling. A blend of memories, scents, meals, and experiences, wrapped in unconditional acceptance and love. A place to be yourself. A place to be.
We leave home with our feet, but not our hearts. We chase our dreams but know that whatever road we follow will lead us home again. We change, we mature, we marry, yet despite this it feels good to leave and feels even better to come back. Wendy Wander
For those of us who stay behind, we tend the fires, rely on emails and facetime, photos and memories in anticipation of being together again.
Having somewhere to go is home.
Having someone to love is family.
Having both is a blessing.
May your walls know joy
May every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibilities.
