The Comforts of Home

It was a long drive from college, but she finally made it home for the weekend. Immediately upon arriving, she gave her mother a hug, walked upstairs, laid her head on her pillow, held her stuffed tiger and gazed over to the bookshelves against her wall. It held all of her precious momentos, books and medals she had won over the years. All of them were reminders of her early childhood and the years she had spent growing up. The smell of homecooking wafted up the stairs and into her bedroom. She felt an overwhelming sense of comfort and warmth wash over her like a giant embrace. It’s so good to be home, she thought.
