Where, my dear reader, is your home? Is it the place where your heart says “yes”? Is it your childhood home? Is it the house where you now live?
I am a lucky sixty year old woman to call two places my home.
- Our Little House in the Big Woods, in Aura, Michigan, in our dear Upper Peninsula. We’ve made our little house our “home of the heart” for about 35 years.
- My childhood home in Yale, Michigan, where my 85-year-old mama still resides. As many of you know, I am visiting her downstate this week. How many people can still visit their childhood home at age sixty, I ask you sincerely?
Yesterday, upon arriving at my childhood home, I was surprised to see my niece Keely! (Who had just been surprised to learn that Aunt Kathy was on her way.)
We decided to drive to the Dorsey House for lunch. Keeley surprised us by inviting her sister, Tianna, to join us.
What a day of surprises!
Today, I am fulfilling the photo challenge for the month of April. Today’s prompt is “Inspiring Quote.”
You do know what quote I’m choosing, don’t you?
Home is where the heart is.
(I suspect Home could be anywhere, then, if our hearts are wide open. What do you think?)
Love, Aunt Kathy who is going to make roasted cauliflower for her and Mom for dinner. (We ate lunch TODAY at the Olive Garden in Port Huron.)
