Home

When people find out we are moving to Little Rock, AR, they always ask “Why??” This is a good question, especially considering where we live now, with the beach at the end of the street and a beautiful house we have been renovating since before we moved in 9 years ago, and also how much we love it here and all of our friends that are here. St. Augustine is home and has been for 14 years, why leave now?
The idea to move was actually Thomas’, not mine. And considering we are moving back to where I grew up, and away from where he grew up it’s a very big deal. As I sit in our house now surrounded by boxes, it is starting to sink in; we are leaving this place that I love so much… HOME. I moved away from Little Rock when I was 20, so it’s not “home” any longer, but the place I grew up and where my parents, sisters, and extended family all live. It’s where I go for Thanksgiving to be surrounded by the familiar smells of the holiday with family, but it’s not my home. But then I have to ask myself, “What defines home?” To me “home” is where ever Thomas’ and I are together, we make it home. So, now my new home will be in Little Rock, with Thomas’ and Dottie, with the added bonus of being closer to my family. It’s a place that I will return to when I finish my treatment in Russia and am free of MS.

“Just know you’re not alone, I’m going to make this place your (my) home.”

A little music for you morning.
