Home Is Where the Heart Is

Home is not just a physical place; it's so much more than wood, bricks, and mortar.  It's a haven and a place to gather in from the elements and be with those we love.

Home is where thoughtful gifts from those we love can brighten our whole week.

Family --

and memories surround us.

Home is a place where everyone is welcome,

and some of those who love us can't say so with words.

but a look just says it all.  :)

Home is the place where things of beauty delight us,

and things that delight us grow more beautiful with time.

The passing seasons --

are marked with traditions

and gratitude.

Home --

is where the heart is.

Linking today with Laura at Decor To Adore for the "Thoughts of Home" Party.

Hope to see you there.  :)

  13. Going through my blog list tonight because I am having trouble commenting on some blogs without filling in my info each time. I've noticed it happens badly when I am visiting around from linky parties. So far I've only had four from my blog list that is not autofilling my info. This is frustrating and odd. It doesn't happen if they are Blogger blogs.

  14. What a beautiful post. You are so right- home is where the heart is.
