This week's journal is all about Home.
In my homey kitchen: As it it after supper, there's not much going on in my kitchen except a sink full of dirty dishes screaming to be washed. Can't you hear them??? The kitchen is truly the heart of our home and it seams like chaos avails there, but I love it!
My thoughts on being at home: It's my calling. I truly believe My job is to be a good wife and mother. I do at times feel very alone, but this is more due to my disability and the fact that I can't drive and am home bound for the most part. Sometimes it does seam as a prison. My freedom is limited, as is the freedom my children, because of my CP. However, it is also a safe heaven. I am in control (for the most part) of my home. It's where I can be myself and can teach my children about God and our values.
A constant habit I have of keeping my home comfortable is: I try to keep my house clean, clothes clean and good food on the table. I really try to keep a peaceful spirit in the house - this is hard between a big brother and a little sister.
If I could change the decor in my home: Not much, we pretty much have it like we want it. The inly thin that I would like to do is raise our sunroom to be on the same level as the rest of the house. Right now is down 3 stairs. While I can walk a bit, I worry about falling.
What I want my children/spouse/other family to remember about my home is: I want them to feel peace and love here. I want this to be a sanctuary for them; an escape from the world's chaos. I want it to be a place where they can be free to be themselves.
Home: To me home is a feeling. My parentsseparated when I was 17 and so the home was broken I would stay with my BFF as often as possible. In college I lived in dorms, and although I would catch glimpses of home every now and then with different friends, It wasn't until I met Bryan that I truly felt at home. I love the house we live in, but he and the kids are what make it a home.
