Thankful Thursday: A Home

sadly, i don’t have an actual pic….thank you, clip art search for this adorable little house!!

I am thankful to have a home. A place to call our own, to personalize to our own tastes, and to share & create memories in. Living in Minnesota, the weather can get pretty brutal….[although right now it’s an uncharacteristic February day as we are sitting at 33 degrees!]. I recall nights where the wind is howling outside and the heat is roaring away while I am laying warm and toasty in my bed. I thank the Lord for blessing us with a roof over our heads and walls to shelter us from Mother Nature’s nastier sides. I may not have a home that’s everything that I want. I may not have all the money to transform it into my perfect place. There are a lot of things I want to change about our home right now… but I am thankful we have a home at all. Daddy P & I started out in a Townhouse that I bought on my own and that was B’s very first home where we brought him home to. I still own it as the house market plummeted and we are renting it out at an attempt to keep my credit score safe. I am so thankful we were able to find and move into our current home. We are slowly making it our own and it’s become a really fun process. I am hoping to learn to appreciate more of what I have and not focus so much on what I want. So today, I am thankful for our beautiful home that houses my beautiful family. 🙂

  1. Love this post! I feel the same way. We could use a bigger house with more space, but I really am thankful to have the one we've got. When did you move?

  2. I love this post too! I can't wait to have a home to call my own where my family can all be under one roof and where we can hopefully add to it. I'm very grateful for the home Jack and I have now, though!

  3. Good point! We live in a rental which the hubby thinks is too small but I find fine. You gotta be thankful for what you got before you can really appreciate when you get more. Anyways, hope the market picks up again so you can sell/rent your townhouse!
