H~ Home

Spring 2011
 Once again, I had a different topic I was going to write about today but as the day when on and my husband and I worked in our yard, I felt this was better suited for today.
Tomorrow marks the day we moved into our home 13 years ago. At the time, my youngest son was 7 with his 8th birthday just 2 weeks away! I remember setting out their Easter baskets in the kitchen for their first morning and Easter in our new home.
We have watched our kids grow up here, literally going from boys to men. As with any family, we have laughed, cried, celebrated and said good-bye during these past 13 years.
Home has been a place of love and comfort for me. Especially during the difficult times going through all the treatments, surgeries and challenging moments. It is a place of refuge where I feel warm, safe and loved.
There really is no place like HOME!

Nice use of H, home is a great place. My husband and I are going to hit two years in our house this summer and it's exciting.

Good morning Elayne. You're so right. There is truly no place like home. Your home looks lovely in the winter and the spring. It sounds like you have a place of peace, safety and a whole lot of love!
Blessings.
