June Blog Challenge Day 22: HOME
This is quite a timely word for me, as my sister comes home for a visit today! She lives overseas and doesn't get to come home all that often, so it will be nice to have her in town for a whole month!
The idea of home is a touchy subject. Growing up, I felt at home in my bedroom. It was my place. The only place I could escape to and feel (somewhat) safe to do as I pleased. I loved my bedroom. I cried when I moved out of my parents house, only because I would miss my room.
I was involved with horses from the time I was 11 until my mid-20s, and I always felt at home around horses. My first horse was my best, best, BEST friend, and I could tell him anything. I was even known to sleep in his stall when we were away at horse shows, just because it felt so safe there, with him watching over me while I slept. To this day, I attribute my survival to my horse, cause without him, I would not have made it through my turbulent adolescence and teenage years.
My current home, a small little apartment, is just the right size for one. It isn't my dream home, but it is mine, and it give me a place to live, with a roof over my head and three locks, so I'm pretty safe here.
Prompt: What is home? A place? A person? Have you ever felt at home? Have you worked hard to create your own home? Is it a place inside you or a place you’ve built around you and your family? Get to the deeper meaning. Post a picture of your “home” if that’s easier to describe your feelings.
