Where Home Is

Join me in the Five Minute Friday Challenge hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker. Participants write for 5 minutes with no editing, no over thinking, and no backtracking. This week’s word is: Home.


I’ve moved around a bit. Left a piece of me in each town. Got a piece of each town in me.

As a child I always thought of my birth town as home – even when we lived one thousand kilometres away. Home then meant family; grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. As an adult, I’ve done the same thing – lived one thousand kilometres away (in the other direction this time). For a while home still meant roots; parents, siblings, nieces and nephews.

I still haven’t moved back home. To that town at least. I’ve found a new one. I’ve found a new me. Home is the place where I create a reflection of that.  Home is husband and children. Home is where you will find a collection of things that we love - displayed in a way that expresses who we are. Home is where I can be myself. Home is a safe place to land.

Home is my home away from home – my forever home in glory.


Now, your turn…


  1. Beautiful...yes...home IS a soft place to land! Blessings to you!

  2. "Home is where I can be myself"- such a nice feeling isn't it?

    1. Yes it is. Without it I'd be lost. Blessings :o)

  3. Dear Lizzie
    Yes, dear one, home is where I can just let my hair down and just be me. Home is where I feel welcome in my own skin and heart. The location is quite irrelevant! Over via FMF.
    Much love

    1. So true - the location really is irrelevant! Bless you heaps :o)

  4. "Home is where I can be myself". I have found so many placed like that, in homes of friends and loved ones. Blessings to you!


Thanks for commenting - I love to hear what you're thinking!
