A house or a home?

It’s day 2 of my 3 days, 3 quotes challenge. Again I’d like to start by thanking Tammy from Tammy’s Reading/Writing Life .

If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, please do so. You don’t know what your missing out on.

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  • Nominate three bloggers each day.

Quote #2

This Quote hangs on a plaque on my kitchen wall and its meaning strikes a chord in my heart. I brought it soon after moving into my new house when I was still feeling uneasy about all the changes, it reminded me of what was important. Here’s the message I get from this quote…

‘A house is an empty shell of walls made from bricks and beams. A home is a house, made from walls, bricks and beams but filled with love. A home is where your family are waiting for you, the one place where you truly belong without judgement or prejudice. The one place where you can take off your mask, your makeup, and just be you. Home is the place where you feel safe surrounded by those who offer you unconditional love and support. Memories are made in your home, plans are made in your home, dreams are made in your home. No matter where you are in the world, no place feels more comfortable than being at home. Home is not a building – It is the love that lives inside the building and it can be relocated anywhere in the world’.

I love my home for all these reasons… I’ve tried to explain this quote to my children but I don’t think they get it yet. But I hope they remember my words (and this quote) later on in life and know they are always welcome home.

Ok… So today I nominate the following 3 bloggers:

  1. Searching for my Inner Zen
  2. Helen’s Journey
  3. Julie Beeks

I hope you decide to take on the challenge and I look forward to reading your quotes and the reasons why you chose them.

Until tomorrow… Get HOME safely!
