A new place to call home…
and a beautiful home it became the very moment she placed her bags down within the empty room.

The room emanates warmth…

It’s filled with all of the love she carries in her heart, passing it on to every square inch she now resides in.

It’s in the messages, on her door, inviting friends inside.

It’s in the positivity, enveloping her, which speaks volumes to every new face she meets.

The room emanates love…

It’s in every laugh echoing through the door and vibrating into her neighbor’s room.

It’s the soft lights strung up creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

It’s gathering extra pillows, to make a cozy bed, when a new friend misses home.

The room emanates compassion.

It’s offering empathy and a listening ear.

It’s sharing meals, with friends, to soothe the ache of missing a home cooked meal.

It’s hugs, lots and lots of hugs, within this sacred space.

It’s the little things she does to make this her home.

Her new home.
Her home.

A piece of her she will forever hold onto with pride.

Her home.
Her new home.
A home overflowing with love.

And as I await her return, I’ll savor the pieces of home she has chosen to bring along her journey.

Her home.
Our home.
Her new home.

Each one spilling over with love.
A love which emanates throughout.
