This Place Is Home (with audio)

Original image found here on Pinterest

The smell of the slow-cooking roast
laughter bouncing off the freshly painted walls 
smile on my face 
this place is home

Carefully thought-out desserts 
catering to all the dietary needs 
everyone belongs 
this place is home

Space to spread out and relax 
feet pounding up (and down) the stairs 
no need to hush 
this place is home

A drink in hand 
surrounded by extended family 
bless this house 
this place is home


I wrote this simple piece after hosting the first lunch in my new home (yes, I recently moved). After everyone left, I took a few moments to reflect on the joy and peace I felt. This is not my finest writing, but it is true and dear reader… I share it with you.
