The dictionary defines home as a place where a person lives. This is true for a basic definition, but a home is much, much more. Personally, over the course of my lifetime thus far, many places have been home to me beginning with my childhood. Over time my roots during those early years set the tone for the rest of my life and how I would celebrate traditions, friends, and most of all my family. This is what made our house a home. I have had many opportunities to do just that and I am grateful for the memories left in each one. I know this for sure, it is not the size of the home or it’s location, but the warmth and love that welcomes those I cherish through the door.
