What are you thankful for?


Every time I am asked this question I always stop and delve deep into my life to find the most “meaningful” thing to be thankful for.  There has always been a need in me to sound very intelligent in my response to this one.  Why, I can not say.  There is so much that I am thankful for if only I would just speak it and not fear condemnation for my thoughts.  So, here I go…

My home.  It has been our home for 17 years. I have never lived anywhere that long in my entire life!  There has been a lot of things happen in this home.  Not all good but certainly not all bad.  Right now it is not a place that our kids are “running” back to but I know there will come a day when they will appreciate that HOME is still here and they can come to it any time.

Home is a safe place.
Home is a place where you can be you and not worry about what the outside world thinks.
Home reflects your values and beliefs.
Home is cozy and comfortable.
Home is a place to be creative, or  not.
Home is where you can be angry and everyone still loves you in the end.
Home is home cooked meals shared around the table.
Home is where your heart is! 🙂

  1. a lovely home! I love where I live as well but sometimes it feels a bit too big without the kids. Then they visit and the house feels too small 🙂


  2. I just realized you're back to blogging 😀 It will be interesting to see what new things God brings into your life. This has been kind of a “renaissance year” for me. I still have one homeschooling (part time) but the boys need less supervision and help. I've joined a BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) and LOVE it, a running class and I LIKE it (need the exercise, love the camaraderie), and am taking violin lessons and looking forward to a week of fiddle camp with my youngest son. So thankful to have the time/money to try new things!


Get yourself a cup of tea and let's have a chat! I love our talks!
