"Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home."
Our home is not fancy..it has a very "lived in" look.
And no wonder, we have lived here since 1965.
The family is grown and out on their own,
so it is just the two of us most of the time.
Today has been very cool for this time of year, and as usual quite busy.
When I came in this evening, I ran a nice tub of hot water,soaked awhile..
(helps the aches and pains),
then got my "blankey" and settled in my spot on the couch.
And I thought how blessed I am, and how thankful..to have a place to sit and rest ,
a place where I can close the door
and leave the cares of the world outside for awhile.
A place to lay my head at night and sleep.
A place out of the cold...and the heat.
A place filled with memories of happy times with my children when they were growing up.
Thanksgivings and Christmas..I used to buy so many presents it would take a whole day to wrap everything!
Life has been good.
What a precious word!
Thank you, Lord.
