What does home mean to you? Home means squeaky screen doors, a comfy place to read, friendly laughing voices and a kitchen messy from dinner preparations. Home, to me, also means a place where you feel safe and loved. Safe to share your thoughts and try out new ideas. Loved for who you are and who you are striving to be.
So while you may fear you are failing, you are not. Every day you get up and decide to try again, is a day that a tiny miracle occurs. A house is becoming a HOME!
