(From The Beauty of Motherhood)
A roof to keep out the rain. Four walls to keep out the wind. Floors to keep out the cold. Yes, but home is more than that. It is the laugh of a baby, the song of a mother, the strength of a father. Warmth of loving hearts, light from happy eyes, kindness, loyalty, comradeship. Home is first school and first church for young ones, where they learn what is right, what is good, and what is kind. Where joy is shared and sorrow eased. Where fathers and mothers are respected and loved. Where the simplest food is good enough for kings because it is earned. Where money is not so important as loving-kindness. Where even the teakettle sings from happiness. That is home. God bless it.

A lovely quote from a sweet little book of mine. I know I have many kindred spirits reading here, who share my love of home and homekeeping, so I thought I'd share it today.
Sorry my posting has been a bit slow of late - I think I'm in summer break mode, lol. I'm working on a few projects though, and I'll get back in the swing of things soon. Please know I'm thinking of you all and praying you are happy and well.
Enjoy your Tuesday, my friends ... and especially, the comforts of your own home, wherever that may be and with whomever you share it. I hope it is, above all, a place of peace for you.
See you here again very soon ...
