Six Word Fridays: Home

Home is:

…safe inside his strong arms

…a heavy head on my shoulder

…doing dishes together on the phone

…knowing I am always welcome there

…not a place, but a feeling

…where the heart is-really.

…a tender respite from the world

…knit from heart-strings, family ties.

…where we always wish we were.

    My favorite moment, which I haven’t had for a while, is a kiss on my neck or a hug from behind while I am doing dishes. That feels like home and love to me.

    “…where we always wish we were.”
    so true. I remember even as a kid, just wanting to “go home.”
    very nice. 🙂

    Nicely written. Home truly is a condition, not a place.

    I like the first and the last lines! His strong arms are where I always want to be! He’ll be home from a week of work tonight! It can’t get here fast enough!!

    The heart strings… My daughter used to sing “who says you can’t go home” knowing that she can always go home. She is starting to learn that home isn’t necessarily where we live but it is the love that she is and the compassion and empathy and hugs of her mamma!
    Happy Friday

    “a tender respite from the world” — just so. just so. 🙂

    Ah, yes, a heavy hand can be a good thing.
