Home is where you place yourself.

She found it very difficult to leave her  marital home after many years of marriage.  She hated the idea of someone else painting the interior, the possibility that they would want to change the new kitchen sink.

She spent many months torn, as to what to do, with the marital home.   She cried when he would tell her to leave. She felt more attached to the memories inside of the home then she did her marriage.

As the marriage divided further and further apart  she held on tighter to the home.   Her children were raised there.  Her memories were placed there.  She shed so many tears and fought so hard to keep her babies safe.

Her final choice to move out of  the home was heart wrenching when truthfully she didn’t want to leave.  It was a constant spinning in her soul.  She knew that she always wanted the home however she couldn’t endure the marriage.  One last “get out”and she left.

She found a place that didn’t fit her normal lifestyle.  She changed everything she was in order to provide for her family.  She settled in areas no one would have expected.

Every picture they hung started their new life. Her tears stopped after a few months and her memories moved on.  Peace became hers in her new home

Home is where you place yourself.
