It is perfectly OK to enjoy familiar things over and over. Tasting the same fruit twice can be very nice.

Wendy and I recently returned to Pennsylvania from my first “snow bird” season in Florida. Although I very much enjoyed the sunshine and warmth of our surroundings and the friendships we created, there is something about coming home to what’s most familiar that feels extra nice.

Things that we sometimes overlooked took on a familiar feel much like a favorite pair of warm, cozy pajamas before slipping into our extra cool sheets, given the temperature difference.


Where and how do you take extra pleasure in the familiar aspects of your life?

Which of the fruits of your world help you feel most at home?
