The home is a place to feel at peace
a refuge from the rush of life.
As things have been so busy lately
I find myself wanting more time at home.
I want to nestle on a soft and comfy couch
to snuggle with a child... or three.
To cook up some delicious fare
in the kitchen of my dreams...
Mine will do - for now.
I yearn to sit and read
...to read for fun.
I read a lot every day...
from school books,
history, literature, science
But, to read a novel for the joy...
this is something I would do galore.
To take the time to plan out meals
then shop and chop and slice and cook!
This is something to strive to improve
so that my family looks forward, with joy
to meals that may be simple or may be
fancy..but either way that say..I love you!
I long for time to deep clean.
To take out every last little thing
in every cupboard and nook and cranny.
To wipe and dust and sort and shine.
I want that just moved in feeling, again.
This is my dream.
I want to provide that nest that says
come home my little ones. Come home to
Momma, who loves you so.
A warm and inviting space to which my husband
rushes to each day...after working so hard.
A place of comfort, love and respect.
This is my goal.
I want this home to be focused on...
and our family!
While I am not a big fan of New Year's resolutions...if I were to make one it would be this...that our home's appearance and atmosphere would reflect the love that is found inside it! I have not been at my best at these things over the past couple of years. I am striving to do better. Many of you fellow bloggers have been a huge inspiration. Thank You!
