Do you ever think that you take your home for granted? I mean, we are all so busy fluffing and improving, it is almost as if we can't really see how beautiful the home we have already is. I sometimes get reminded when I have guests. You see, we have lived here so long, sometimes I only see the imperfections in my home. The table that needs paint, the fence that is a work in progress in the yard.
We recently had one of our daughters friends come over for dinner and she brought a girlfriend that we had not yet met. I was worried because the house was a mess, the yard was torn up where Earl is putting in some fence, but she walked into the house, looked around and said how pretty she thought it was. When we went outside to grill the meat and eat, she looked around and I heard her say, "Oh how beautiful!" Huh? To me it's just a yard, I see things I want to do to improve it and I have been failing to see it's beauty. Sometimes I need to step back and appreciate what I have. As it is, right now. Today is a cleaning day for me. (Does anyone elses house get trashed while you are busy relaxing on the weekend?) I plan to look around while I clean and appreciate my home just the way it is...and then tomorrow I have some things I want to spray paint. Lol, I hope you look around at the beauty you have this week too:>)
