Week 36 – Thankful Tuesdays
Home is where the heart is. I know that saying is clichéd by now, but it is so true. But today, I’m going to thank two homes, both of which mean a lot to me.
The first is my home. I’ve been there for more than a decade now, and it’s my second favorite place in the world (the first favorite is my grandparents’ home, because it has with it, thirteen years’ worth of childhood memories). I have a loving family who cares for me, and who I care for. It has memories too, not all of which are wonderful, but which are still priceless. It’s small but quite warm with that love. It has a bookshelf which I’m proud of, and hope to make it bigger. It has comforts that make it nice, but it’s the love that makes it heaven. I have a neighbor whose little girl adores me and cheers me up each time. And even a neighbor who’s a blogger and shares that crazy book passion. Home is where the heart is and it is with them most of the time.
When it’s not with them, the feeling of home is in the words that I love so much. Words have helped me build my life back from the edge, and with more happiness than I had then. Words have given me refuge when I’ve been abandoned by inspiration. And I hope they continue to flourish. In fact, I’m quite wordless when it comes to expressing how grateful I am to words.
