Home is Where the Heart is

Last night I had a conversation with my big sister about life and the utmost importance of taking a lesson from every experience- I've been running around in a slight panic the last week-the date on the calendar forces me to recognize that yet another year is on its way out- I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way.  My big sister has always taken such care of me and my 4 siblings.  Last night was no different, she listened to my woes and gave me wonderful insight on life's adventures to come.  This morning, while drinking my tea, I stumbled upon this photograph, it was taken outside the house where we grew up.  I'm on the left, with my big sister and oldest brother.  In an instance I am flooded with memories of the past, of lessons learned, some easily, others fantastically difficult.  I become more aware everyday that through it all, I was lucky to have had my "home"-my family.   That old phrase now holds such meaning- home is where the heart is- and that is with my family.  So, as this year says its goodbyes through a wonderful list of festivities, thanks, generosity and celebration I will celebrate the future, because we got through the past!  

To my family- I love you more and more with each passing hour of every day.
