Chapter 5, Page 27, Book 18

Life is short, and it’s up to you to make it sweet.

Sadie Delany

The sweetness of life

Sweet is the smile of home; the mutual look when hearts are of each other sure. 

John Keeble.

I can never say enough about the importance of home and family.  Although my children are long gone and have families and homes of their own, I hope that in some small way they will always remember the sweetness of home and that they too try to create a place where every one is comfortable, relaxed and can find refuge from the storms of life.

By home, we mean a place the mind can settle…a refuge to which we flee in the expectation of finding calm peace, the soothing kindnesses, which are the sweetness of life.

James Bean

They say that Home is Where the Heart is.  To me a cozy home is lived in and a space that shows you’ve been there. A home is where memories are made and love is shared.  When we think of the people we laugh with the most it’s often our closest family and friends.

Celebrate we will, for life is short but sweet for certain.

Dave Matthews

Be it ever so humble there is really no place quite like home sweet home.  

That it will never come again  is what makes life so sweet.

Emily Dickinson

Home is such a safe secure place for me; even though it is also the place I work for a living, it is always good to finish my shift at the end of the day and be able to relax at home. Such a good feeling!

Have a great Sunday!

I love that 'heart' cottage; is it a potholder?
So, I just closed my eyes and counted residences (since 1950) ... so surprised to learn 'right here' is #21. Only one sticks out as feeling like 'home', but I'm working real hard to create #2 right here in Coosada.

Us who have had fantastic childhoods in a beautiful family CANNOT imagine any other kind of life. When you knew love your entire childhood, it is hard to picture a family with no love.
