A few words that come to mind when I hear the word HOME
H – ome sweet home
O – ur shelter
M – ake yourself at home
E – motional connection
I did a little research on the word home, the first place I checked was Wikipedia and what I found was a halfheartedness attitude towards home where the meaning described was all about construct. I know that having a house and a roof over our heads is a blessing, it is where most of us live after all. It truly is a shelter from the elements. So important, however, I simply was looking for something more, something about what home means to people mind, body and soul.
Home to me is… love, warmth, connection, where I can be myself, have home cooked meals, listen to my favourite music, a place where I pray, meditate, sing (only loved ones are privy to my singing – I will spare you. Home is…cozy, where dreams begin, where I rest, play, laugh and sometimes cry. It is where we find hope and where miracles happen. Home is a safe place to fail, to fall and to get right back up again without fear of being judged, and where there are a zillion memories — some good, some not so much.
A house has walls, beams, doors, windows and fixtures, things and most definitely has value but home is much more than that, HOME is priceless true gold where you will find your heart. Happiness is going home. Are you driving home for Christmas?
I have attached a song by Chris Rae for your enjoyment.
