"What is home but that place
where your name becomes precious,
the place where your name finds its power?
You find power when you are at home
because it is there that you are loved,
cherished, and accepted as you are,
with all your frailty, fears, and flaws.
It is there in that lovely dwelling place
called home that you discover
you don't have to be perfect to be loved.
There, at home, you are able to embrace
the truth that it's part of your life journey
to be in process.
You don't have to be finished to be good.
You don't have to be finished to see splendor."
