“Home wasn't a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together.

“What is home? My favorite definition is "a safe place," a place where one is free from attack, a place where one experiences secure relationships and affirmation.

The people in it do not need to be perfect; instead, they need to be honest, loving, supportive, recognizing a common humanity that makes all of us vulnerable.” ― Gladys M. Hunt
