The Charm of Home

Still Life of Pink Roses in a Glass Vase


It is late at night. The house is in need of cleaning. I will do a little work in silence. I will say my prayers while I work. Then I will get some rest.

Tomorrow will be a lovely day of rest. Everyone will be home. I will get up early and enjoy a slow paced day.

I will sit in my favorite chair near the wood stove and watch the snow falling out the window. I will drink hot chocolate with marshmallows in my finest tea cup and I will be happy.

But for now, I am going to make the house look charming.  When I am finished, I will sigh contented and look around the dim rooms. I will be grateful and happy for my family and my life. . . and everything will be okay.

Blessings
Mrs. White

I always enjoy how intentionally you speak of good things. You take the sweet moments almost like a check list, making sure you don't miss them. Wonderful simplicity, an unencumbered trek to peace. Thank you!
