Today I’m trying something new. I’m participating in The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is Place in the World.
Where do I belong? Where is my Place in the World?
My initial response is at home.
…with my three tall, wonderful men,
…and my two boy kitties.
And although I love my home here in New England, I come from a neighbouring country.
Whenever I cross the border,
…I feel a sense of relaxed belonging, even after twenty-plus years of living here in the US.
I still have family there, especially my parents, a 100-yr. old grandmother, and many close relatives and friends.
And on some vacations, if we keep driving north, we reach one of my favourite places on the earth, the Algonquin Park area. It’s a place shared by my original family and the one I’m part of now with my own husband and sons. We still meet here together with my parents and sister’s family and make new memories to add to those collected over the years.
We stay in cabins and soak in the beauty of nature for a week…
…having fun together,
…admiring the tranquility of God’s grande creation.
So if you ask me where I belong, I will tell you that these places inspire feelings of familiarity, comfort and peace.
But the greatest thing that unites them all is my family.
They are my place in the world.
