A letter from home
The sky remains gloomy but that does little to dim my excitement as I pen this letter. If life has taught me anything, it’s that it’s better to have joy than mere happiness. No matter the weather or circumstance, keep your mood lighthearted. Life is messed up as it is.
Home is where the heart is. Not a location or a house but anywhere that love resides. I have personally experienced when I had to move from my parents’ home to the capital city because of work. And God being so good, He blessed with my best friend’s family opening their homes and hearts to me. Now, I feel like I’m home away from home.
Mum, dad, you know there’s nothing to worry about because I’m in a place with a strong spiritual covering. Your daughter is in safe hands. I’m also in a place where I have people to look up to as compared to being the one looked up to. Though I found it as a privileged challenge to be the one my smart siblings look up to, I’m also grateful to be in a position where I get to be inspired by others.
I’m blessed to be surrounded by ambitious yet principled Christians both at home and work whose presence fill me with so much hope about the future. When I’m with them, it doesn’t matter if we are seated around a dinner table or stuck in traffic, I always feel at home.
What does home mean to you? Where is your home? Kindly share and thanks for reading.
