In her two decades on earth, Mattie had lived in so many places. The way she was raised, she never knew if she was coming or going.
Some people sought fame or fortune, but Mattie only sought a place to call "home". On her life's journey of many moves, it was a very pleasant surprise when love actually found her.
Now, as Mattie crossed the entrance into yet another house, she knew it was love that made it a home.
"A house is a home when it shelters
the body and comforts the soul."
