Home Is Where The Heart Is
Love. The most powerful thing in this world. An emotion that can make you feel a million ways. Happy, sad, scared, powerful and on and on. It can make you do things you never thought you would do or even could do. And when its true love, it can change a person and in most cases for the better.
My true love and I have spent the past two years in a long distance relationship. A lot of my friends told me they didn't think it would work. That I couldn't work out of town and be away 70% of the time and still be in a healthy relationship. And every time I came home from those long weeks of work, my heart would explode with happiness when I saw him waiting for me at the airport. When my plane landed and I was home.
But now that those long distance years are finally over, it made me realize why my friends were wrong and why we made it through unscathed. Because his heart is my home and he knows my heart is his. It is the one place in the entire world I know will always hold a spot for me. Knowing that made us strong. It made the nightly phone calls a priority. The "Good Morning" texts a necessity and the flowers I would come home to a luxury.
When I came home for good I realized its not the location we live in that was home to me . Its how close I am to his heart everyday that makes me feel really at home.. xoxo
