Come step through my door…

It might be simple on the outside
But as you step through our chipped wood door
and feel the warmth on your face
hear the laughter filling empty space, then

You’ll know why this is a special place.

Where memories are made and stories are born.
Whether rain is falling or fireflies glow
People come over and celebrate
being together no matter the weather
or maybe a birthday or two

Home is also a place where you can be you
laughing, crying or shouting too
It is also a place to mend broken hearts
As love can fill the biggest spaces
Because a mother’s hug
Or kind word from a friend
Are all things that help a heart mend

All these things and more
Are what make a house a home
But sometimes you won’t know
Until you step in the door…
