This Place Is Home (with audio)

The smell of the slow-cooking roastlaughter 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 blessContinue reading “This Place Is Home (with audio)”
