I've always heard the coined term, home is where the heart is...of which I believe. Home is different. Home is more special. Home is a new normal for me, but if I had to rephrase the statement, I'd say, "home is where your peace resides."
The two simple words thank you have such power meanings behind them. Those two words show appreciation for you specifically or something done by you. Even though the thank you is coming from someone else...it's essentially centered around you. How wonderful is it to be thought of and appreciated.
