for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."

Home is our sanctuary, where we:
relax into being ourselves,
play with our inner child,
paint the walls green and pink,

grow something,
love somebody else,
love ourselves even more,
snuggle with a warm blanket on a Sunday afternoon,
hang "go away" on the door whenever we want,
clean and tidy often... or never,
launch from and return to,
are truly ourselves.
