of Fiction with a Purpose
This week's Ponder: Home
Home truly is where the heart is. "Home" means something different for each person, and with each phase in a person's life.
To me, Home is my refuge. Home is where I feel secure, where I belong. Home is where I feel loved. Home is the place where my husband and I come back together. Home is where we connect when all is said and done in the world.
Home is where my cats and critters are, waiting for me no matter what anyone else says or does...they are at Home, just waiting for me.
Home is where my comfy chair is, and my comfy bed with my comfy pillow and blankets. This is important because when I have had to be away for prolonged periods of time (hospitals and health facilities for joint replacements), I miss these things very much! Home means comfort, too. "There is no place like home!"
But for me, Home is also the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is there that my heart yearns to be, where I can really breathe, relax, and be at peace with the world. My heart is that of a Yooper...and someday my Home will be there.
