Home. That’s a heavy word. Sometimes home isn’t where you are or where you live. But there are ways to make it like home or things that feel like home. While I have a lovely home right now, sometimes I get the aches of some things that just feel like my childhood home. It’s never quite the same, especially since the city I grew up in is a fairly unique place.
The Things That Feel Like Home
- Family: Having Mr. H and C around. Spending time together. That is always home to me.
- The Sounds of C: Whether he’s singing, making train noises, giggling, screaming, whatever. That’s how I know I am where my heart belongs, my current home.
- Smell of Food Cooking: There’s something truly heartwarming about walking into the house and smelling food cooking. Or even coming from a back bedroom out into the living room or kitchen and smelling food. Or even while I’m standing over it cooking. Home-cooked meals are a must (though I’m not always great at making it happen) and it’s great family time to eat them together.
- The Mess: Ok, that might sound bad, but home for me (at this stage in life) includes random toys all over the place and random piles of laundry to do because sometimes things just don’t make it into the baskets. Even though it annoys me
sometimesa lot, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
- My Comforter and Pillow: I love them so much. They are so comfortable. I could take them anywhere and feel like I’m at home curled up with them.
- Golf Carts: This one is pretty unique to my childhood home. There are golf cart paths all over the city and although you can get everywhere by car, you can also get there by golf cart. Plus teenagers can drive them before turning 16. (Unless they changed the laws? They were always adjusting that rule.)
