As we approach Christmas, you may or may not feel like decorating based on a whole number of reasons. But, if your reasons have anything to do with the state of your current house…this just might be for you. Especially at the holidays, take time for making your house your home.
It’s all about making your house your home….and my experience of doing that last fall.
Funny how things change overnight.
We were working at making that rental “our” place.
And here we are now, with the rental sold in September, and still no job prospects.
We put everything in storage and we’re living with friends while the hunt and rejection continues.
It seemed pointless to move a commercial moving van full of stuff, when we had no idea where we would end up.
We’re blessed to have such good friends…I only hope that we are able to bless them during this time as well.
Now…making my house a home seems like light years ago.
But, one thing I know for sure. The advice I gave in that post, is good advice which I’ll need to remember in the next leg of my journey. Maybe it will even help you right where you are now.
You’ll love this…When you read the post I reference you’ll be interested to know, that the comment I made to the “orange tinged” window trims, I actually painted the trim a few weeks later as I embraced the importance of making your house your home.
