Home!

Anders’ thoughts were centered on Kari, whom he would hold in his arms tonight for the first time in months. How he had missed her warmth, her open-hearted love for him and their children.

It had been six months since they had sailed away. The whaling had gone exactly as hoped. There would be celebrations in many households tonight.

Home, however, filled his heart and mind with a craving he’d never felt before. As they sailed into the familiar harbor, he looked forward to telling Kari that this had been his final voyage.

  1. A wonderful and hopeful story. While reading the song I heard was, “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” and the lines:

    “He came on a summer’s day
    Bringin’ gifts from far away
    But he made it clear he couldn’t stay
    No harbor was his home”

    In the end, they all come home. Well done.
