Well, this time of year many of our thoughts reflect back to home and our loved ones. Home has different meanings to different people.
When I think of the word home I think of comfort, relaxation, security, coziness, and warmth. I think back to the days of my youth and all the security and comfort that I found in the four walls of my home.
I guess that this feeling goes way back to my youth on the southwest side of a large metropolitan city. It was a very small apartment shared with two older brothers, BUT, it was home. Then came a move to the suburbs which became another home. Then I was off to college and was able to come home to that suburban cape cod for the holidays, it was a good feeling being able to come home. Then there was a marriage and another home was established. Then a tour of service and I was able to come home yet again.
As time has gone on in my life, a number of homes have crossed my path.
The last home that I lived in, I lived in for thirty eight years.
As I was driving home this evening to a relatively new one, a slew of emotions hit me, and I felt contented, comfortable, secure, warm, and cozy because I was headed home.....and it was Christmas.
May we all have fond memories during this holiday season of our homes, past and present. Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnite!
