I was trying to think of a topic for today, and I realized that I want to talk about how I’m trying to make my home peaceful. That’s why I’ve been organizing and trying to keep my house picked up. We don’t have the fanciest of “things” in my house. I stayed home to raise my kids and my husband doesn’t make a lot of money. We’ve got old furniture; live in a log cabin and heat with wood; and there are many things that need to be replaced. However, I really love our home.
We’ve had a lot of living and loving here. Too often a house stops being a reflection of the people who live in it, and becomes just a place to eat and sleep. I want to create a place that’s a haven from the rest of the madness out there in the world. So, when I looked into the “hows” of making my house into a peaceful place, the first thing I found was organizing. And to think that I came up with this all on my own! I will continue to organize (I’ve finished two more food cabinets) and let you know how it’s going. But I could use some ideas. How have you made your home a peaceful haven? Please let me know.
