Tonight my children and I are headed back "home". We will return to a place where our heads once rested; a place where we were lovingly embraced by dear friends; where part of our heart still remains. We will share stories and laughter, coming together once again as family in a community where we spent a large part of our lives.
It is bittersweet going back. Seeing familiar faces and places brings back wonderful memories of joy and friendship. And though as the years go by it seems more natural to come back to our "new" home here in the country, there is always a touch of nostalgia sitting on our shoulders as we pull away from what we once held close.
Enjoy what you have. Enjoy who you have. Make memories, make moments, make magic. Then when the road turns and you chart a new course, your "homes" will be many...and your heart will be full.
