July Blogging Challenge~ Day 5

Home



What is home?

Home isn't the fancy house that looks like a museum.
Home is where the people you love and cherish reside. It's not the physical structure, but the people that fill it with laughter, tears, smiles, and giggles.

Home is the life you build together as a family.

The first day in your new home as husband and wife.
The sweet baby that fills the nights with cries and the days with laughter.
The first smile from a chubby little face.
It's saying goodbye to babies you will never hold.
It's the nights holding a sick child in your arms praying to God she gets better.
The first book read to you by a child.
It's Baptisms, First Holy Communions, and sharing your faith in every day life.
Bedtime stories.
Playing hide and seek and finding nooks to hide in.
Creating magical birthdays.
Spending days just doing ordinary things.
Playing store or kitchen with eager little kids.
It's listening to stories about dinosaurs and ice cream men over and over.
It's kissing the boo boos and bandaging up skinned knees.
Watching the look of pride come across the face of a child when they learn to ride a bike.
It wrapping your arms around children as they say good bye to the dog.
It's realizing that as a parent we can't always protect.
It's listening to little boys talk about snakes and bugs.
It's traveling together and exploring new parts of the world.
It's spending time with 4 generations.
It's a little boy picking out a train to put in his great-grandfather's casket to say goodbye.
Night time prayers.
Butterfly kisses.

It's life. It's the every day events.

Home is looking at the days that have passed and the days that will come and being filled with joy. It's praising God for what has been given and being grateful for all that you have been blessed with.



Join in on the fun!

Happy 4th of July!



Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodline.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

July Blogging Challenge~ Day 3

Our View           

Living in the country gives me a sense of peace and tranquility. I can look out my window and see flowers, wildlife, and God's beauty up close and personal.

We get to see kitties relaxing in their jungle.




Flowers blooming all around!


And occasionally, we get to see a slow moving friend traveling through our quiet realm of the world.
