An old quote declares "home is where the heart resides." Yes this is true. However, Melody Beattie says it even better: "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."
Over the years I've been blessed with many homes. My parent's home where I grew up, college dorms (well, kind of home), apartments, condos, and townhouses. Each place I've enjoyed and cherished. However, when I purchased this house and then moved into it...I had the hardest time accepting it as home. Yet here I am knowing that finally...I've arrived home.
Already these rooms have been filled with love and laughter and memorable events. All of these things make a house a home And for that I am eternally grateful.
Thank you Universe!
