This week I have enjoyed the unique opportunity to assist my son and precious daughter in law as they get re-settled in CA for a new life there~ a new adventure. What I have loved the most has been watching them transform a “house” into a “home”!
Nate and Kate are no strangers to setting up house as their short married life has already had numerous moves.
Furniture, bedding, dishes, and blankets are all needed in order to set up house. However, Pictures and memory-based items make a house a home!
As I have spent this past week alongside these two I have observed the MOST important aspect of what makes a house a home. KINDNESS.
In the midst of boxes, unfamiliar streets, new noises, and the idiosyncrasy’s of a home build in the 1920’s, I have seen these two show incredible kindness to one another.
Whether you live in Bend, OR., Seattle, WA., or Palo Alto, CA~ You can make a house a home IF you are intentional about doing so.
Today–look around your home….does is represent your family with all it’s uniqueness’s? Is your home full of kindness and care? I pray that it is and that your house is indeed a HOME! 🙂
