Last week when we arrived home, we were welcomed by clear skies, blue water and temperatures hovering right around 90 degrees. It felt wonderful! Looking out the plane window, I spotted our little island and felt so peaceful. We were home! Even though we’ve only been here for 6 months, and even though we will only be here temporarily (perhaps 2-4 years) we’ve already adapted to calling this place home.
I felt even more at home...
...when we visited a restaurant and knew half of the diners!
...when I was greeted by name at the store.
...when I saw a pedestrian crossing the street and the vehicles stopped.
...when I drove 25 mph and it felt fast enough.
...when I didn’t have to lock my car door.
...when I didn’t have to plug in my cell phone before bed.
...when my round-trip to the grocery store took 30 minutes.
...when I heard colors in the evening.
...when I proudly watched the flag flying high on the hill.
