Callie Morrison Professor Mazzolini English Comp. 101A February 17, 2012 Home is Where the Heart is They always say home is where the heart is. I never really knew what that meant until I got older. Home is always going to be there no matter what or where you go in life. Some people may consider home to be at their parents’ house, their own house, or living with someone else. It can also be some place you really like or somewhere you spend a lot of time at. It may be many different places at the same time. You can consider a lot of places home and still feel at home there.
Also, you should never forget where you came from and what home meant to you. Where would home be to me? Home would be in Pocahontas County, WV, in a little place called Buckeye. It is also known to be my parents’ house and where I grew up at. Why do I love this place so much? For the reason it has the most beautiful views and it is so peaceful and quiet. It is way back in the country. It also overlooks the river and the mountains across the river. It also has a big field that has different species of wildlife in it.
There are also some many beautiful animals that are around my mom and dad’s house. I love to sit there and watch the animals run, play, and eat. I also like to just go out and sit and think about things and just get away from everything for a little bit. It is everything that you would think of. What home means to me is family time. Spending time with my parents and my grandparents is why I love home so much. It is filled with so much love. Love is an important thing to me especially when my family is involved.
It also means that I can go anywhere on my parent’s land and I can have alone time to think about things and to help me with my homework, but it also helps me get away from all the craziness in life for just a few minutes. Home will always hold a place in my heart that will never change and it means so much to me and always will. Home has so much love, faithfulness, and support. I wouldn’t change where home is because it has so many memories that have been made and it has so much love in it that you can feel it when you walk in the door.
All the memories have been so amazing and I will never forget them. I have so many memories of my real mom and my dad. I also have memories of my dogs that have been my best friends and also my horses. My dad has also taught me a lot of things in his shop, trucks, and the farm. My grandparents also told me stories about when they were little and when my great grandparents were little. It is where I was raised, and it will always be my home no matter where I go in life. I love it in Buckeye, WV. Buckeye, WV, has made me the person I am today.
It made me an independent person and it also helped me find where I was going in life and also how I was going to get there. For some reason, when I am able to retire I’m going to go back to Steven Hole Road and live there forever. It has also made me more respectful of little towns and the people in them. You learn to wave at everyone and you say “hey” or “hello” no matter if you know the person or not. If your neighbor, friend, or stranger does something kind or tries to help you the best way they know how, you learn you will always do the same in return for them.
It may not be that same day, month or year, but doing something will show how you were raised. You always know where you are going in Buckeye and you will hardly ever get lost. You always try to find your way out of places you get yourself into and you will always have someone by your side no matter how hard things get in life, always remember that, and most of those people will come from home. Buckeye, WV, is some place everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. It is so beautiful and has the most amazing home feeling. It is a place that will get in your blood and never get out.
Being from there is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It is the most amazing place I believe there is in West Virginia. My parents and grandparents have also taught me to be respectful and thoughtful of everyone else and not to put myself ahead of others. Home has not changed at all for me, except for welcoming my beautiful baby girl Canden Reann Lambert into the family and going to college to make my life better, but I have so much support coming from Buckeye that is so amazing. If you are ever in Buckeye stop in and meet some of the nicest people you will ever meet.
