Living in the Midst of Boxes

Just an ordinary, quiet dinner this tuesday night.  Daddy was late getting home, kids were tired (and so was momma!).  Walls are barren, floors stacked with boxes.  It’s hard to want to do the normal things, like light the candle for dinner, cut the fresh blooms from the zinnias the kids gave me for my 30th.  But in the midst of the transition and the mix of emotions, it helps to keep some things normal.  The silly things that seem a waste of time and energy: they are the things that sort of keep me sane right now.

A little beauty and a little normalcy go a long way when nothing feels normal!  So here’s to holding onto home, when home is being redefined.

  1. You make your home so cozy by the little things you add. I told Dan, when I was there last, I felt so peaceful because of just how you have simple things around..praying for your moving and pregnancy amidst the chaotic days.
