Mindfulness Challenge Week 22: Home

There’s no place like home…

I could have chosen many images to represent home:  our house full of our memories; the soothing beaches we’ve spent hours on searching for treasures; the house I grew up in; the people who make this place feel like home: or any of the scenic spots surrounding this beautiful city.  

Any of these, alone, seems inadequate to represent the feelings of comfort and community that come from having a history in a place, when thinking of the city we live in.

It is equally challenging to place the entire meaning of home in our house; we’ve moved several times and each one felt like home.

Home is more than a place: It is family and ftiends and shared stories and a sense of safety.  It is where our past meets our present.  It is an intangible feeling of being at home, a feeling of belonging.

While waiting for the Canada Day fireworks, we spotted this beautiful rainbow over the water.  The light was mesmerizing.  I decided to use this picture to represent home because it is warmth, beauty, and wonder – just like home.
