Home is absolutely my favorite place to be. It’s where I find the greatest joy and my biggest purpose in life. It’s where I can surround myself with things and people that I love. And as Lauren Myracle says, “I live in my own little world. But its ok, they know me here.”
We’ve been watching The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings as we do every year for Andy’s birthday. My favorite scene is when the dwarves show up unexpectedly to Bilbo Baggins’ house and make themselves at home. As Bilbo starts getting upset thinking all his beloved treasures are going to be destroyed, Gandalf teases him about being so concerned with doilies and his mother’s dishes. How much I identify with Bilbo and my enjoyment of the simple pleasures of home! I love looking around at Bilbo’s comfortable home and seeing his fully-stocked pantry; the warm fire in his grate; and how much he enjoys simple home life as much as I do. In that regard, Bilbo and I are kindred spirits.
Home is many things, but above all, it’s where we tell our own personal story!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
