It’s not the location of the family, it’s the location of your heart.
It’s a smile that fits like a glove made especially for you.
It’s a tear that erases the years of your absence.
It’s the love that binds your heart, yet never confines your spirit.
It’s an unspoken acceptance and forgiveness before you require it.
It’s the gratitude of birth and the grace of life.
It’s born of blood, or an alliance of kindred spirits that cannot be broken.
It’s not always who you have chosen, but who has chosen you.
It’s the people around you that encase you from the world.
It’s the people around you that rejoice in your courage to face the world.
It's the people that you have the honor to cherish, encourage and inspire.
It’s where your spirit feels at peace and at home,
It’s where your being belongs.
