This post spoke volumes to me and I'm sure that the wonderful B won't mind me linking to it. She tells it exactly how it is!! I have often felt the same way.
I think I have now reached a point in my life where here is where home is, mostly because we have created a safe, sound environment for our kids and feel it's extremely important that they have a place called home. When they are grown this will be their "home". You turn a corner when you start a family and it all goes from "us" to "them" and back to a big fat "US" again, only this time the US is all of us. That will make sense to anyone with kids who are no longer babies but little persons with opinions and thoughts and most of all input, we have two that will always have their input believe me!!! especially Thing 2 as she's now calling herself.
So what can I tell B and others like her? I don't know that we world travellers will all have the same outcome, some learn to live in harmony with their new surroundings, some go home to where they grew up, and still more like Hubby and myself, well we just wandered til we found somewhere that felt somewhat like home to both of us and then stopped.
I am definitely seeing a trend here in the blogosphere; there are a lot of transplants as I like to call them...we must all have more in common than we realize???? Hhhmmm now there's something to blog about.
