Home is where the heart is

Home is where the heart is
And my home
Is anywhere you are
Anywhere you are
Is home

Lyrics from the song
"Home Is Where The Heart Is"
Elvis Presley



~ Home Is Where The Heart Is | Elvis Presley ~



It is possible to live in the place of your dreams and be deliriously happy being there . . . alone . . . all by yourself.  Many times I have written about embracing your solitude . . . and for a while I did.

If I were given the choice to live anywhere my heart desires, it is exactly where I am, sharing my life with the most important person in my life who is my heart's desire, the one who has enhanced my life.

Home is no longer a place to me . . . home is where we are together.

Now, if someone wanted to give me a vacation home directly on the Gulf with a view of the beach, I would not complain!

sometimes they say that no place like home. But, since we want to follow the desire of our heart. We actually forget our own home because of the satisfaction we received from a new home we desired. Thanks for sharing, I like your Monday Morning Meme.
