MY HOME

I woke up this morning feeling very grateful for who I am and what I have. It's not everyday I wake up like this. Sometimes you are barely done with opening your eyes when all the issues clamoring for your attention flood your mind and reduce the greeting 'good morning' to mere tradition because you already know the morning isn't good!

I'm grateful this morning though, for the gift of life, good health, a loving family, my school, the 'on-the-hour' job I have, the consulting I do on the side, a place to lay my head (what I call my little mansion), I'm grateful for God's love that covers a multitude of sins, I'm just full of gratitude this morning! So grateful that I dug out a poem I wrote in January (an entry for a competition) that best describes the way I feel about the place I can truly call home, which is where you are...… Enjoy.

Loving arms wrapped around me

from my entrance, beginning of my story

told me I would never need to worry

these arms are my home

Patiently you taught, valiantly you fought

sacrifices all made to keep me from hurt

disagreeing I would run, but back to you burnt

these arms make my home

To cook to bake to clean to make

lessons in you, the joys, mistakes

pride fills my heart, this love is not misplaced

your arms are my home

Safe bunker when I was scared

when the tears fell, heart needed to mend

never judging, always ready to defend

these arms are my home

Like an eagle thrust into the sky

I must leave, I must learn to fly

but even when you are far from my eyes

you are, you remain my home

I hope you liked it, have a fabulous weekend!
