What Is Home? It Starts With Sanctuary & Your Place in This World, But What Else?

When I reflected on the topic of what is home, a few important things came to mind:

  • A place to sit outside and enjoy nature. 
  • Shade and protection provided by trees and shrubs.
  • A vegetable garden and flowers. 
  • A place to park your car and camper.
  • Reminders from childhood and your favorite people.
  • Your favorite things on the walls. 
  • A place for recreation.
  • A place to relax in your own recliner. 
  • Where someone is always waiting for you.
  • Where you can be yourself. 

Home is that special place where you are accepted and loved. A place you care so much about that you sweat regularly making it clean and inviting. A feeling you have that you never want to lose. Where remnants of you will remain long after you’re gone. 

What does home mean to you?

I so love this, Kathy Ast-Kutzbach . Yes, all those things, for sure. And, it's a place where you should feel safe. But for me, "home" doesn't have to be a place; rather, a feeling. It's the feeling I get when I'm with those I love, especially my husband. So even when we travel, when he's at my side, I feel at home. I hope that makes sense. Thank you for sharing this food for thought!
