The Warm Feeling of Home
Going to Mom and Dad’s is a heartwarming experience. The drive is short, but it takes you out of one world into another.
The closer I get to their world, a different kind of peace overcomes me, just to know that I will be greeted by loved ones with open arms and hearts full brimming over
with a joy and gladness I can find nowhere else.
In Mom and Dad’s world, I only have to step out onto the porch to hear the day awaken. The birds welcome the morning rejoicing in their song as the squirrels busily scamper about shopping for their breakfast.
As I sit listening to nature bring in the day, I feel a warm feeling come over me like I have never felt before. I think it to be this place, but it seems stronger than that. Maybe, it’s the love I hear echoing through the trees – but again no, maybe the contentment I see in Mom and Dad’s eyes, but alas I’m mistaken.
Could it be the spirit of new beginnings as the woodpecker pounds away at his potentially new home, or the freshness of each pedal on the flowers as they open up to reach to the sun for their morning devotions?
What is this warm feeling that has come over me? Is it the angelic brush of the wind as the hummingbirds flutter by partaking of the gift of nectar that has so generously been provided? Or maybe it’s the gentle waves lapping at the shore rocking in calmness to sooth the busy thoughts and ease the frazzled nerves?
Once more I ask, what is this wonderful warm feeling? I look down and see….
Oh! I see…. It’s the hot coffee running down my leg!
