Loving Life at Home
We are fast moving on through this world. Soon all that will remain of us will be the memories of our lives. No part of our work will then afford such a true test or our living as the memorials we leave behind us in our homes. No other work that God gives any of us to do is so important, so sacred, so far-reaching in its influence, so delicate and easily marred as our home-making.~J.R.Miller~Home-Making
I love being home. In fact, I am home pretty much ALL the time! And I'm not complaining. I complain if I have to leave!! I hit our local library a couple times a week and church on Sunday. Usually about once or twice a month I will make a major grocery shopping trip but hubby normally stops after work for anything I may need since he works in the city. I think living in a small country town is a plus in keeping me home. Plus the business of home itself with many children is another reason. I find that when life pulls me away from home often, the kids get cranky, meals don't happen, and house cleaning doesn't get kept up. You know, I think that when "the kids ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." I know for my own children that keeping up a stable and consistent home routine really helps them in being happy and feeling secure.
