10 thoughts on “Home past and present…

  1. Yes, yes, yes! A house is just a structure, but a true home is a place of sanctuary, a refuge from all the sharp edges we encounter in our lives and in the world. Home is where you feel content. I am so thankful that both you and I found our way HOME at last!

  2. This is a very interesting take on the prompt quote. It had me reflecting on my past and present homes. As a child, we moved constantly. I went to 11 schools. As an adult I know there is security in sameness. We have lived here for 28 years.

    1. I can’t imagine moving 11 times. I had a hard enough time trying to fit in and belong as it was. I have lived here 37 years and in my home for 20. There is security when you are happy where you live.
