I love traveling and as much fun as I had on my vacation, there is something warm and wonderful about being home again. Maybe it is the familiarity of our home or the reassurance of a daily routine. Whatever the reason “home is where the heart is”.
Before moving to Southern California, we spent many months living on the road in a motor home, so wherever we went, we were there since our home was on wheels. Although we took our home with us, one thing was missing during that time – a sense of community.
Home for me is more than the dwelling I live in – it is a spiritual community where I feel loved, appreciated, understood, and welcomed. So home is more than just the physical space we abide in, it is, in fact, having a spiritual community in which I can participate in the growth and development of other like minded people on a regular basis. I learned, during that period of traveling, having a spiritual family was an important aspect for making me feel like I’m home.
