We are indeed about to embark on our 10th move, since our eldest was born, March 1998 and our 13th move as a married couple!!…I would have never in a million years pictured my life looking like this, however I am learning to embrace and ENJOY the journey.

HOME, such a beautiful word, when you have loving memories to look back on and draw from. This current relocation has come about because of the desire to create a space that our children would LOVE to bring friends to. A place where we could begin new teen journeys in, with room for entertaining and a local community full of inspiration.

I met a dear friend at the tram stop the other day, who asked why we were moving. I casually rattled off the above paragraph to which he looked back at me with widely opened eyes welling with tears. I said, “Are you ok?” he proceeded to say, “do you know how foreign this all sounds.” Confused I said, “What sounds?” He said, when I was a child I only remember my mum saying, “Don’t bring anyone home!” and if I said I was going to a party at a friend’s house, she would say “ask if you can stay the night!”

I am realising more and more the importance of the message of HOME. I no longer assume that all the young ones I mentor know what this picture looks like or that they understand what a home represents. Some messages, such as this one, NEVER go out of fashion. They are the foundation on which everything else is built. What does home look like to you?

Let’s keep this message alive!

Be inspired to be the difference.
