"Home Sweet Home"* states the old cross stitched sign which hangs in homes across America. These days the saying "Home is Where the Heart is" seems to be making it's way into our home-spun vocabulary as well.
I must say however, in view of the recent fire storm that has been sweeping through our state, that people are sentimental while, at the same time, very resilient.
Over the years we've all seen TV news interviews of families who've literally just lost everything they owned and yet (to our surprise) tell of how fortunate they are. Fotunate to be safe, thankful to be alive, and grateful to be together as a family. Everything contrary to what one would think they would feel.
Oh, I'm sure (if the truth be known) they would rather the entire incident had never happened and the loss had not been incurred. Yet, having faced down an ugly reality, these souls have come through with their priorities intact. In short, they have counted their blessings as greater than their losses and (in so doing) have not been found wanting.
Such people are amazing to our everyday sensibilities and facinate us as to how they do it. They certainly deserve our help in any manner we can give it. After all, the heart IS the only home they now have, let's open ours to them.
*From the song; "Home Sweet Home" by Henry Bishop and John Howard Payne, 1914.
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
