Transplanted



This weekend's Trifextra challenge:
Describe something that is three different things at the same time, in 33 words. 



Transplanted

I used to dream of being buried in my birthplace half-way around the world.  Now, home is the roof that stretches over my children’s heads and the land in which they are rooted.

  7. It's funny how much our dreams for ourselves change once we have kids. Great entry this week!

    BTW I *love* the pic of your kids! I still love playing in the puddles when it rains :)

    1. Thank you, Rachel! I am partial to this picture, too, because I think it speaks a thousand words. My kiddos love playing in rain, while I prefer to stay home to stay dry--and take the wordy pics. :)

  9. "home" for me is where my grands are - I understand this sentiment exactly. Sometimes we pick our home and sometimes our home picks us.

  12. Thank you all so much for your kind comments! It's been a very busy weekend, and it's so lovely to sit down finally and read everyone's Trifecta responses. I am so glad you can relate to my sentiment about my birthplace. It will always remain special (and very far away), but home is where my family is. :) I appreciate your stopping by!
