Walking home

I was out shopping one day, seeking to find items to decorate my new house, when I stumbled upon a little wooden sign.  The sign says, “We’re all just walking each other home.” It intrigued me, so I bought it.  Every time I look at it, I smile.

Home means different things to everyone.  A place, a feeling, a smell that takes you back to your youth, or vivid memories that visit, inviting you back.

For me, the journey home is my goal.

Knowing that there is a goal gives me a renewed purpose.  Daily.

My purpose is simple: to make a positive impact on this earth by loving everyone deeply.

I believe that I was placed exactly where I am for a reason.  In this house, on this street, with these children, with this job, wearing these hats, speaking these words…

When we know why we are here, what our life is meant for, we can begin to enjoy the journey home.  

We can leave our fears behind us, cling to hope, look up, move forward, and know that we are headed in the right direction.

One of my favorite places in the world is in Oregon.  I hiked several miles through the lushest green trees, on narrow, steep trails with the most beautiful landscape, to finally experience the scene that matched a poster on my wall – The Multnomah Falls.

The trek was worth it! The breathtaking view at the top was majestic!  Absolutely amazing!

I bought the poster several years ago, at a resale store, and hung it on the wall of the first house I bought on my own.  I had a lofty dream of going there, and honestly thought I’d never fulfill that dream.

Seeing it in person was quite unbelievable!

The relentless, rushing waters cascaded powerfully over the rocks.  The waters overtook the earth.  Their purpose was fulfilled.  They were home.
