No Place Like Home

Be it ever so humble

Home.  There are so many things to be grateful for and HOME is at the top of list.  Today I am waking up to sneezing, watering eyes, and a faucet like nose. Thank goodness I have the comfort of home.  I can dig in and hide beneath my covers and lay in bed and rest and recuperate. I have hot tea, vitamin C, and books and tv to keep me company.  I realize that many do not have the comforts of a home and that makes me even more appreciative.  With central heat, electricity, running water, a stocked refrigerator,  and oh so much more, I realize even though I am on the verge of full blown cold how very blessed and lucky I am.

Wisdom of the Oracle - Colette Baron-Reid

"Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home;
A charm from the sky seems to hallow us there,
Which, seek through the world, is ne'er met with elsewhere.
Home, home, sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home, oh, there's no place like home!"
-first stanza from HOME, SWEET HOME

  1. What a wonderful post to wake up to this morning - thank you Carolyn. Home has not always been a refuge, but I am grateful today that it is both a sacred space and place of comfort.

    1. Sacred space sums it all up rather nicely. Have a wonderful day.

  2. Run! Run! Carolyn is making swamp noises! Rob's sworn cure? He Vickes up his neck than pins on a wool sock. Some people's kids...

    1. It is not that bad, so far. Being in sales I get exposed to a plethora of yucky things.
