You Can Never Go Home

You know that saying, "You can never go home"?  Most people use it to refer to the past.  Even when you go back to where you lived before, things have changed, and it can never be what it was.  I really agree with that thinking.  I believe we should just live in the moment, and make home where we are now.
That being said, it sure would be nice to be in our home.  We are buying a house, but haven't signed the papers yet, and can't move in until at least Saturday.  But we won't have our stuff from storage that fast.  We have been staying with relatives in the mean time.  We are so grateful for their generosity and hospitality, but I know it can't be easy on them.
There is one sight that always makes me feel at home.  The picture below is of the mountains in the town where my mother has lived for many years.  She grew up in this town, and after my father returned, they moved in to my grandparents house.  I may not live there now, but it still feels like home!  Hmmm, I can't seem to add a picture from my ipad.  Here is a winter one for now.

I think that houses are only bricks and mortar. Home is where the heart is. Hope you are soon settled again.

I have never really felt like I had a home town or even a "home" house,but I do have a home state, albeit an adopted one, and that is Utah. So welcome back to Utah. I hope all works out for the best to get you into your new home.

We are looking forward to hearing how your move to Provo is going. Is the whole family (except Teresa) together there now? Best wishes to you. We are in Northern Idaho now. If you want to see what we have been doing check out this blog belonging to Chuck's sister. www.mwhomestead.blogspot.com This farm is over 100 years old and still in the same family.

Something strange happens to me when I go to the town where I spent my school days. There is so much nostalgia and wonder at the changes that have taken place that when I talk about them, the locals who had not moved out like I had find me odd. I still like to get back to the comfort of my own home where we have lived now for the past quarter of a century.

@Rummuser: Hey, for some reason I can't pull up your blog. Is it me? :)

@Shackman: Good song choice. :)

You seem to be the only one with that problem. May be it was just a temporary glitch. Try again please.

Rummuser, I tried your blog again today, but Google says it can't find it. :( I'll see if I can use another browser.
