1. Place of rest.
My home should be a welcoming place. We all face many battles on some days. Home should be the place to put those aside and find rest and ease with each other. I’ve never been house proud and prefer simple decoration and comfy furniture. A place that we can really be comfortable in.
2. Place of learning.
This is after all where I am raising my children. Am I preparing them for them for their life to come. I want to especially remember this as I am going about my daily activities. I want them to be involved in the kitchen and in the rest of the home. I always want to be looking for opportunities to help them become self sufficient and to find out who they are and what they love so I can encourage them to follow those dreams
3. Place of safety.
I’ve always wanted to have a home for my family where they feel they can get away from social pressures and from judgement. One place where they can be themselves and be completely and wholly accepted.
4. Place to grow gratitude.
5. Place to welcome friends.
6. Place to return
When it all comes to an end and my children have flown the nest, I want this to be a place where they want to visit. I hope that everything that we do here creates a closeness between us that brings us all together as our family spreads its wings.
