Thankful For My Home

DSC_0237It is often easy this time of year as we gather in other’s homes, full of holiday cheer, to compare and judge our own homes to those that are bigger, cleaner, and better decorated than ours.  This year I am going to be thankful for my home just the way it is…DSC_0265 (2) I am thankful for a small home…

Less carpets to vacuum

Less toilets to clean

Less floors to mopDSC_0821 I am thankful for secondhand furniture…

Furniture that can get scuffed up and repainted

Furniture that does not cost much when it breaks

Furniture that is so shabby chicDSC_0305 I am thankful that I must hand water my plants and scrub my own sinks…

I enjoy things so much more when I can see the outcome of the work of my own hands

I take pride in the things I have and take better care of themDSC_0326 I want to be more content with what I have and enjoy the simpler things of life. 

What are you thankful for in your own home?

Hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving!  I will be taking a few days off from blogging to spend time with my husband and family.
