The ABC's of Life...H is for Home

"There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort." ~Jane Austen

"There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds and comforts & virtues never know beyond it's hallowed limits." ~Robert Southey

"Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other. It is the place of confidence. It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defense, and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts. It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule." ~Frederick W. Robertson

Home is more than just a building with walls and's more than just furniture and knick-knacks and "stuff". It's a place filled with family and love and laughter. With warm hugs and the echo of "love you's" lingering in the air. It's a sanctuary and a refuge. It's a shelter from the outside world. It's filled with light and fresh flowers and stacks of books in every room. It's a place where your spirit can be free and your soul can be refreshed. For me my home is simple, casual and relaxed. It's comfortable. It's organized (for the most part...just don't look in the hall closet). It's where I can wear my comfy clothes and go barefoot. Home is where happiness lives.
