“Home is where
the heart is.”
This phrase has many meanings with the most obvious meaning being a physical location – where you live. But home is so much more than a warm bed and a comfy couch. It’s love, security and connection.
Home isn’t a place as much as it is a feeling. It’s where you can truly be yourself. It’s where you learn from your family all the happenings of their day. Where you celebrate accomplishments, birthdays, anniversaries. It’s the site of many traditions. It’s where you learn from each other and how you can support one another through struggles. Home evokes a sigh of relief as you walk in the door.
Now imagine if you didn’t have a place to call home and what you faced was fear and uncertainty – for you and for your children. The resolute statement that you’ve held in your mind, “That won’t happen to my child” now becomes, “I have to find a safe place for us to stay tonight, perhaps tomorrow, maybe next week.”
