Thankful Tuesdays: Home is where the heart is

We've been taking a peek into various small spaces for little people, and I couldn't help marveling at how each space is unique, thanks to the people that live in that home.

So this week, I am thankful for what makes a house a home:

:: Laughter that fills the empty gaps and rings through the rooms in the morning. And songs that are sung, that filter through the walls and make me smile.

:: Messy meals around the table, that is sticky from little fingers. Tummies that get fed while gathering together as a family.

:: That same table, splattered with paint or streaked with crayon marks from some happy half hour of art.

:: Books, that get read aloud and are enjoyed together as a family.

:: Containers, that sort and hold all manner of useful things and sometimes things that are precious.

Baby J was riding in a "space ship". A Papa-powered one.

:: Smiles, that brighten up the home more than any expensive painting can.

I am thankful to God for giving us a family, that makes whatever place we go to, home. I am grateful that we do not need to worry about where to rest our head, or when our next meal is coming. Sometimes, it is a happy problem to ponder about what to cook for dinner, or what colour bedsheets will match our room... isn't it?

So thankful for home, be it here in Germany, or in Singapore. How about you? What are you thankful for this week?
