Home is where the heart is. Home is just where I feel that I belong. I remember reading a book when I was in elementary school called The Belonging Place written by Jean Little. That author was just amazing. I’ve been meaning to find this book and read it again. But thats exactly it, home is where I belong, where I feel warm and cuddly and safe.
It can be a variety of things, like a home cooked meal…
Or a playful glance, or wrapped in a security blanketor just wrapped in the affection of the ones we love
My cat is the best example because she had found her security with us. Now she takes on the protector role where she comes and checks on me during the day or she doesn’t sleep on my bed unless I’m home or working at my desk. When she was a kitten, she would just sleep and forget about everything because she’s secure on my lap.
That’s is feeling at home: belonging, secure, warm and happy!
Its like travelling with my boyfriend, it doesn’t ever really matter where we go. The point is the quality time we spend together taking hikes, sitting in the car talking on the drive, planning out our destination, eating our meals together and exploring the cities near or far. That’s what makes it memorable, the people we’re with because the make us feel at home.
I’m submitting my response to this challenge so last minute. Hopefully next challenge I’ll be back in the game.
