 I celebrate home.

A place to create --
build,
draw,
write,
cook.
 
A place to relax --
read,
write,
sip,
laugh.
 
A place to be safe --
play,
cry,
sigh,
fail.
 
A place to love --
Andy,
Hannah,
Stephanie,
Jay,
Sam.

 I celebrate home.
 
I hope you carve out some time to celebrate this week! Link-up below.

  1. Ruth, home is a special place to feel safe and warm. You captured that.
    I wrote about Advent for #SpritiualJourney Thursday and will mention this in my post (http://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-season-for-listening.html).

  2. Certainly you should celebrate home but it is your stories of your children and the miracles that happen every day in your home (that I have been reading about all week) that fill my heart to the brim and remind me that we only really love when we give our hearts away.

  4. This is beautiful. I believe one can write this way because they have been so intentional about the love they share in that home. What a lovely way to show that love and all the amazing things it can result in, even if it's not perfect. I also loved your doughnut story this week. I have on a post it note, "She forgot about herself, because of her acts of kindness to others." That will stick with me for a long time. Thank you, again for this format and place to share and connect.

  5. Home is where love is - it's as simple as that, isn't it Ruth? And that is a blessing.

  6. I'm in the midst of project that celebrates home, and the 'light' it brings to us, Ruth. Your own poem is a treasure, & I hope you don't mind if I use it as an example for students to write about their own homes. Love that ending!

  10. Dear Ruth,
    Appreciations for your words about delight in what is around you in your cosy nest. (next was in the above deleted...)
    I feel this will help us to slacken our pace & be present in each glorious moment.
