"I am home when I see love tucked in all the corners of my heart." ~Amy Sperry Faldet

Tenderness... beauty... light reside in the heart and shine when you step in the house and say with the greatest lilt in your voice, " I am home."

I am an only child. Even when I walk into my house and it is empty, I never feel lonely.
I understand my place in the world.
When, I say "home," it is a place in my heart. I speak to the solitude whispers with just as much love as when I speak to the rambunctious ramblings of my big family.
Home is sweet.
If I could tell a child one thing, it would be, "Love yourself," for that is the time when you are truly home.

Dearest friend! Coming to visit your blog is a little like coming home for me. I totally agree with you - the only place to ever truly be "home" is within ourselves... Much love to you!! Silke
