34.52 motivational monday

When you finally go back to your old hometown,
you find it wasn't the old home you missed but your childhood.
- Sam Ewing
Oh, the memories that are wrapped and neatly tied in our childhood homes,
or the hometowns we grew up in.

I was thinking about this week's blog post, wondering what I could do with it.
Then I thought of this beautiful painting that we had commissioned this summer.
Lavona Keskey is an artist who captures life.
To me, her art has always breathed life.
For our parent's 50th wedding anniversary we had Lavona paint our childhood home,
complete with the living that went on there, as a gift for them.
Memories were collected from siblings and added to the piece,
including the shoe kicking contest which some of you who visited
probably participated in once or twice.

The completed piece of art captures the quote for this post.
It isn't the house we long for,
it is the childhood .....

that we keep going back to.
Linking to Gloria
