Recently my sister and I took a trip to our ancestry homeland of Ireland where I was reminded of the meaning of home. Everyone we met there was so warm and welcoming. By the end of the week the local merchants were waving to us as we walked by in this beautiful coastal village of Barna. It reminded me of the small town where I grew up.

Recently my sister and I took a trip to our ancestry homeland of Ireland where I was reminded of the meaning of home. Everyone we met there was so warm and welcoming. By the end of the week the local merchants were waving to us as we walked by in this beautiful coastal village of Barna. It reminded me of the small town where I grew up. I think several things contributed to this hometown feeling I experienced in a new country. Taking the trip with a sibling, walking through the cities, towns and villages of my ancestors, the genuine loving people there, relating to the similar hardships of the country. This trip has brought new life to the saying 'home is where the heart is' for me. With God's infinite love dwelling in my heart I have a great capacity to love. I am grateful for yet another place that I can call home, for a little piece of my heart was surely left in Ireland with all the wonderful people and places we visited.

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
