Around this time of year, it’s hard to miss all the pictures and posts about family that cover various social media sites. Family dinners, family get-together’s for Thanksgiving and Christmas, families taking their little one’s trick-or-treating- the list goes on and on. But along with the concept of family, comes an even bigger and more important concept of home.
“Home is where the heart is.”
“Home is where you hang your hat.”
“You can never go home again.”
We’ve all heard all of the countless clichés but in order for a cliché to be coined, there must first be some truth to it. So what exactly is a home? A feeling, a smell, a memory, a family- it’s not the bricks that helped build its walls, nor the cements that solidified a driveway. A home is a place of comfort, of safety, of support, and of individual expression and escape.
Days can be tough but nothing can erase the feeling of pulling into your own driveway, walking in your own front door, and lounging on your own couch, in your own living room, in your own home. At the end of the day, a home cooked meal, maybe a movie night with your significant other, and a sweet dream during the night has the power to set the world right again even when it seems that it may be falling apart.
Memories. A home is where memories are made. Pictures can also hold memories, but pictures can be moved. The trim on a doorframe that holds the heights of your kids can’t be as easily removed and packed away in a box. The stairs your daughter walked down to be picked up for her first date can’t be moved no matter how hard you try; and neither can the driveway that you first drove up on the day you received the keys to your new home.
But when you first move into your new home- there are walls, a kitchen, a bedroom, bathroom, living room- but there are no memories to give you that warm fuzzy, comfortable feeling that ties you there. No personal touches, or pictures; nothing to make you feel at home- yet.
