Day 5 of the 31 Day Writing Challenge with a prompt from 5 Minute Friday. The prompt for today is "Home."
As is often said, "Home is where the heart is." and I agree. In other words for me, home is where ever my family is. My husband and my two girls are what make home, home.
I love our house and I love the fact that my daddy built it for us 19 years ago. It means so much to me and I love living here. Dad built it just the way we wanted. I always dreamed of having a house like this, but I didn't really think we'd ever be able to do it. But God provided.
But while I love our house, it is just a house and as I said before my family is what makes it home. The girls are living out of our home now. Kerri is married and starting her own home. Kelli is living in an apartment with girlfriends, working 2 jobs and working on getting her masters. So now, home has changed.
Now home is my husband and me. It's really pretty cool living the empty nest life. While I loved home when it was hectic with all the stuff our kids had going on, I must say I'm really enjoy this time with just the two of us.
How about you? What is home to you?
