For those of us who have lived in many places over our lifetime, a young friend leaving for university, gave me this quote she found online:
“You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” – girlgi.com
We both found comfort in it, as between us, we do have friends and family all over the world. Often we look at those who still live in the same town where they were born, are deliciously happy and wonder why are we thousands of miles away from our beginnings? Yet our choices make us who we are, and there is a richness in loving and knowing people in one place, or in more than one place. Savor what is.
