Theres a reason why the phrase isnt Theres no place like house.


They say home is where the heart is.
And theyre right.
But theres so much more there.
Theres love. Between moms and dads. Parents and kids. Kids and pets.
Theres energy. Expended in a pickup baseball game, or an enthusiastic round of sibling rivalry.
There are reasons to celebrate, console and commiserate.
There is chaos. And peace. And back to chaos. Many times in the same day.
There are little moments that defy words.
(Which is okay, because sometimes words arent necessary.)
There is silence, even when youre together.
There are sleeping babies and snoring grandpas.
There are kisses good morning, and storytimes at night.
There are have a nice days and how was your days.
We could go on. And on. And on.
Because yes, home is where the heart is.
But its where everything else is, too.
