Home is where the heart is...

Tuesday, 5 April 2011
Hey guys,

I'm in the sunny island of Jamaica to see my family but more importantly say thank you farewell to my Grandma Cicy.

Being on this trip has not only made realise how much I love my family and close ones, but also how fundamental it is to try and have a happy home. This thought has revisited my mind because no matter what reason, time or distance it takes me to visit home, I am always relieved and at ease when I'm home.

Home is where the heart and I intent to absorb all the JA love and sunshine ;) here is some food for thought:

If Home is where the heart is
Then may your Home be blessed
A shelter from the storms of Life
A place of rest,
And when each day is over
And toil put in its place
Your Home’s dear warmth
Will bring its smile
To light the saddest face!
