After that considerable amount of period of time, I was confident to say Louisiana felt like home. Now before my mom reads this and wonders what happened to Wisconsin being my only home, I have to state something that sheds some light on how I feel. I've said it once before, and it still holds true. I've found a home in Louisiana, but now I have two homes. Both Wisconsin and Louisiana are my home, they are both unique, and it's the people that I love so dearly in both places that make me cherish it enough to call home. Wisconsin being where I grew up and built all of my childhood memories, it's no wonder that I hold a lot of sentimental value to it. It's where parents and most of my siblings live, so I where your family is, it's no doubt, that's home. And my family is so important to me: to know that my sister and brother-in-law are coming with their son to visit in exactly one week from today makes me overjoyed. That is the first immediate family to visit me since the almost 3 years that I've lived here. It means A LOT! Louisiana
So when I reflected upon the fact that God has carried me and shown His grace and goodness towards me in the last 3 years, I can't helped be overwhelmed with gratefulness. I'm thankful for every relationship He has brought in my life both near and far.
