month of gratitude #2

Today I am grateful for a hometown for my children.

I grew up being bounced around from place to place. While there is something to be said for the sense of adventure involved in always meeting new people and experiencing new places, it is exceedingly painful to constantly be the new kid. It is not easy to not have a place where you are from. It is not easy to not have lifelong best friends.

My children have these things. I am so glad that we found a wonderful community for my children to grow up in. A place where they are from. A hometown.
