MAKING A HOUSE A HOME
And then I want to smack myself in the face. This is our home. We have a home. A home with a spectacular view of the West Virginia hills. A home that is warm. A home that has cupboards filled with food. A home that keeps us safe. Not all are so lucky. So then I temporarily stop my complaining. But eventually, without fail, I begin comparing our home to others' homes again.
I'm going to try very hard to stop this toxic cycle I've put myself in, and I started by really putting time and effort into making our house feel like a home. Keeping it clean. Putting up mementos that remind us of times past. Filling it with scents of homecooked meals. But mostly, telling my husband every day how much I appreciate him, our life, and the home we have.
We really are so so lucky.
Just a note
