Family and Friends

Friday, November 07, 2008

My husband is building a deck onto my little tiny house.

I am so grateful...not only for the additional (outdoor) living space, but also for the fact that ALL of my family and friends can enter my home. Though I am not challenged with any type of disability (and at the moment none of my family members are either) some of my dearest friends are. I want them to have access to my home.

There are so many wonderful moments that happen at home! Lots of fun and laughter, snacks and a movie, comforting, meaningful discussions over a cup of hot chocolate or a plate of good (healthy) food. We live and work, play and sleep, laugh and cry in the comfort we call home. Isn't that a blessing?

And now, I will be able to do that with all of my family and friends. Thank you, Larry! Thank you, Lord for my wonderful family and friends! May they find peace and warmth a welcoming Presence in this home!

    I love your description of HOME!! I can feel the warmth and love, security and comfort through your post. A nice cup of hot chocolate and healthy snacks sounds pretty good too. Just the fellowship alone is a blessing. I am so happy for you to be able to have your friends with disabilities be able to experience that comfort as well.
    Have a Good & Godly Day,

    Sounds like a nice place to do your exercises when it's warm enough!

    I'm so happy for you! I"m hoping for one of those in the spring as well. I love to have people in my home. It is so small that more than 2 guests is a crowd! A deck would be wonderful!!!! Praising the Lord with you!

    Knowing you, Gail, I'm sure your friends and family do find peace and warmth in your home. Maybe someday I'll be able to sit with you on your new deck...
