What Do I Call Home?
I've heard the saying home is where the heart is, but what does that mean? Where is the heart? I am a firm believer that we glorify God by living free of regrets and full of life. I proudly wear my Toby Keith hat, eat BBQ as often as I possibly can, and enjoy every sport I have ever watched. I think tofu is nasty. I'm willing to try just about anything once, especially food, and my family and friends are my way of knowing that God loves us and wants nothing but the best for us. Sweet tea and beer go with anything. My mom makes the best chili and cornbread this world has ever seen. My wife and I truly enjoy living life together. The highs and lows, the ups and downs make for the greatest adventure I could ever wish for. Her love carries me through each day and makes me crave for the moment I get home each day. I hate cats, they freak me out. Dogs really are man's best friend. I love to cook and my favorite tv channel is the Food Network. I have an awesome family filled with brothers and sisters and grandparents and aunts and uncles that are some of the greatest men and women to ever walk this planet. My dad is my role model and I know that he is playing in a men's softball league where Jesus is the all-time pitcher and you're allowed to hit more than one homerun a game. There is no purer sport than high school football and Friday nights are proof of that. Vermont is the coldest place on the planet to play football, and Boston might be the greatest city in the United States. I love the beach but can't stand the salt water. One look at the night's sky is enough proof for me to know that God created the heavens and earth. I am a proud believer in the United States no matter who our President is. What does any of this have to do with the place that I call home? I'm not completely sure, but I know this is where my heart is.
