If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet.
Blogger and author Rachel Wolchin
I saw this quote last week after we had physically moved from the city to the suburbs and I was feeling somewhat overwhelmed. I was tired to the point of exhaustion at what seemed like the daunting task of turning our new house into our new home and I thought about how nice it would be to be rooted to something permanently.
But I think we are over the hump and things are finally starting to settle down and life is beginning to become normal again. Different, yes, but normal nonetheless.
And I’m happy that I do have feet and not roots.
