Life wasn't meant to be easy. Who said that? Well it's true. Life throws us lots of curved balls as we travel down it's path. Some we manouver around with ease others we don't.
Sometimes it is hard to decide which path to take in life. Some decisions we make are good, some bad but usually we just deal with whatever life dishes up.
And oh boy - I have had a fairly large helping lately. Facing regular battles and challenges whether they be personal or on behalf of those you love, makes you stop and wonder.
What is important in your life and what's not? Have you had some moments in your life when you sit and ponder that question?
I never meant for this post to become all deep and meaningful but with a handful of people I care about facing different types of battles, the people of the world facing various disasters this year, the economy, the world in general really facing some major battles - I have been thinking about it a lot and I think it's time to get back to basics.
I often wonder what life was like back in the pioneer days when people were grateful for a full belly and a warm bed. Society has changed so much and we have so much but quite often we don't realise it.
For those of you that know me you already know that my home is where my heart is. My castle and the centre of my family. I want to build on that and try to be more grateful for what we have, try to appreciate the glories of making our house our home and be thankful for small mercies.
Will you join me? I intend to post a few suggestions each week about making our houses our homes from crafty ideas, to money saving ideas to just feel good ideas. Learning to appreciate what we have and to stop wishing for what we don't......
I would love for you to post some of your own ideas, recipes and tips to make our homes our castles, to fill our bellies with good wholesome food and to warm the hearts of those around us. It might just be a recipe that you share or a housekeeping tip.
Grab the logo above and leave me a message once you have it on your blog and I will pop a link to your blog in my side bar - Each week I will share some of your ideas on my blog.
