Be It Ever So Humble…


Today…I go back to work…after summer break…and…mostly…I’m ready…although…I’d rather be at home…which has really surprised me over the years…

Growing up…always on the go to somewhere…I never considered myself to be a homebody…but…over the years…that’s what I have become…

Now…don’t get me wrong…I enjoy traveling…I enjoy spending time with others…but…deep down…when all is said and done…I want to be home…there’s just something…soothinggrounding…within my four walls…

Bertha…agrees…but…reminds me of the saying…home is where the heart is…and…that…I take my heart with me…wherever I go…to work…to the grocery store…everywhere…

She also reminds me…that…it’s not the walls that ground me…but…the thoughts…the beliefs…that I have within them…and…the thoughts are portable…

She…says…maybe I should think about my heart…as a mobile home…or…a trailer…as we call them in the South…

So…now…she has me smiling…as I contemplate…how…I’m gonna get a…doublewide…in my tiny office at school…

Hmmm…I’m feeling grounded already…
