Ruby Slippers

Home sweet home. Words I have yet to utter in this life. I’ve always wanted to take a deep breath, sigh then say these words, wholly and fully on every level I could possibly apply them.

How can I long to be somewhere I’ve never been before?! Homesick without a home? How can that be?! Is my spirit longing to return to its maker? No! I want to be home in the here and now.

If only I could click my heels, close my eyes, say the magic words, open my eyes and be where I’ve always longed to be. Home.

  1. Not having that feeling of belonging has always been a sad spring trickling inside of me. Although it seems (outwardly) I have drifted even further away from a “home,” knowing what home is not helps me finally head in the right direction, and I know I’ll end up there soon enough, now that I have gotten out of my own way. I’m excited for our stories happily-ever-afters, friend. ❀ Let's cautiously dip our toes into the dreams-come-true spring instead. (:
