Home is Where is Heart is.
I think I am ripping this off some country song, but I don’t really care. I am extremely happy today, Jason came home yesterday after being away for work for a while. It is strange getting use to this I guess him being away, and going here and there all over the place no matter where we go though as long as we are together it feels like home. When I was growing up I always hated having to move from place to place, from Atlanta where I grew up and had many childhood memories to Pittsburgh. From there, we moved to Southern Maryland to be closer to family and father opened up his own law practice. After moving to Maryland I became so used to packing up, moving again, and realized that with family it doesn’t matter what happens where you go, as long as you have each other. As I adapt to this lifestyle with Jason, I now start to remember those days of endless driving and moving from new places and meet new people as I was younger. It is slightly different when you are an adult, instead of sitting in a classroom I get to work. Instead of playing on the playground I get to sit in traffic. There are many similar challenges, and many similar benefits. I have an amazing family who loves and supports me no matter what. And the best part is, I can visit them within just a few short hours. I have a wonderful fiancee who I absolutely adore. The challenges are there, having to establish new connections, meet new people in an unfamiliar town, finding a job (which I did! check!!), and passing the hours when Jason is away. I miss him terribly when he is gone, for now he will be home and I will enjoy every minute of it. Here is my new home with him, my new family with Jason and Bailey. It has been somewhat difficult as I learn how to adjust, how to make this my life, how to make it home. I know that I have always wanted a home of own, and there are times in my life where I have seen things physically or geographically as temporary. I know in my heart with him, and with his life this is my life too now. This place or wherever we go, with us, is permanent. This commitment to each other is a home that I am not willing to leave. So he comes and goes, I will always be here waiting for you…here in this home in my heart.
