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!
