My house is a home because……….
I have lived here for almost 25 years and it is a place where I brought up my son. It has been a family home and it contains the remnants of that life. It contains possessions and memories of the parts of my marriage that were happy, of family life with hubby and my son and of my parents, brothers and their families.
These days it has a different feel. It is more tidy and it is in essence my place. I value it also because it can’t remain my home for ever. Indeed for all that much longer.
While I remain here it will continue to be home. Eventually I will have to move on and make home somewhere else. Until then………….
