Memories in a Home

Memories in a Home

Homes aren’t just rooms and walls. Many memories are made in long-time homes over many generations of people and families. Christmas dinner at Grandma’s. The warm glow of the fire blazing while snug in blankets during a snowstorm. The crisp smell of new leaves as we jump in the first mud puddles of spring, and after our adventures beyond our home, to other homes, we come inside and are cozy and warm. Anything can happen in our house, your house, in anyone’s house could be a new adventure. Cats, dogs, birds, hamsters; what will you find in a home not your own? Anything is possible. Running in the backyard pretending to be a wild animal, friends coming over for a party, and doing science kits with mom. A home is not just rooms and walls. Yes, a home needs rooms and walls to start, but then after it is built with caring hands, memories grow. Memories are what matters in a home, and as the house moves on in generations, more memories build up. More lives start. More wonderful, sweet memories start. A home’s memories are what counts, and to all the people in your home, may you have many great memories there.
