In Others’ Words: Home
“A good home must be made, not bought.”
~Joyce Maynard, American author
To acquire a home, there’s usually a transaction — a sale — of some sort.
But wait a minute.
Do you live in a home? Or have you merely purchased a house? Foundation, roof, walls, rooms … all these things make up a house.
What transforms a house into a home?
The people dwelling there.
The passage of time.
The memories created. One. Moment. At. A. Time … until they tumble into years encompassing lifetimes.
Home. That place they say you can’t go back to — but that you carry in your heart always, for better, for worse.
In Your Words: What transforms a house into a home? Is there one family tradition that will always say “You’re home” to you? Or that says “Welcome to our home” when someone visits your house?
