Once a reporter stood in front of a fire as it consumed a houseand then he turned to see the homeowners and their little sonwatching it burn. The reporter, fishing for a human interest angle,said to the boy, "Son, it looks like you don't have a home anymore."The little boy promptly answered, "Oh, yes, we have a home.We just don't have a house to put it in."
GOOD MORNING !
There is a difference between a house and a home for sure. A home is a place where we can find rest. A home is a place where we can sit down and have our meals together. Here is something that is a great blessing. Meal time isn’t the same anymore for me. I eat while I watch TV or read a book ore even while I’m on the computer. Lack of having someone to share a meal with became a whole new thing for me when the ‘babe’s ‘ all left home.
The companionship of another person or persons is something to be thankful for. It’s great to be able to share the happenings of the day and little things that mean a lot to us. Except for my camping time this summer and a few family get togethers, I’ve had to learn a new way of life. Solitude is good for the soul but too much of it is not a good thing. I guess that is why I enjoy any precious time with my family that I do have.
Today I’m thankful for my family
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
It takes hands to build a house,
but only hearts can build a home.
‘On Ya’- ma
Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that
at this moment, all you have is all you need.
