My Happy Place

Yesterday, I was in the kitchen putting things away. Nathan was chattering away and playing.

My floors are dirty. The dishes weren’t done. There was a pile of laundry waiting for my attention. I don’t even need to mention the bills, and taxes, and other paperwork piled up.

I haven’t had time to knit or read (much) in ages.

But the sun was shining through the window and I smiled at little guy.

The thought came to me, “This is my happy place”.

It is! I’m so thankful that I can be home with my children. I’m thankful that Lee is able to work to provide for us. I’m so thankful I don’t have to carry all the burdens anymore.

Our house isn’t perfect. It’s old and tiny and needs lots of cosmetic attention.

Our family isn’t perfect.

Our marriage isn’t perfect. It’s old and it’s been through a battle and it’s scarred. But it’s ours and it’s precious and I’m thankful.


What about you? Are you happy in your place? I pray that you are!
