A large part of cherishing our home is cherishing it now. We can't wait for every inch to be clean and every project to be completed in order to love our home. So today, when I had to read for class, I cherished our wonderful couch. While Eric and Emmalyn played on the floor, I cherished the work that Eric put into our wood floors. I cherished the space we have for toys and being together in the same room. I cherished the smell of that delicious mulled cider candle in the next room (seriously - go get one). I had to stop and remind myself how grateful I am for our home and for the love that we get to spread throughout it. Yes, there is still a massive unfinished project in our dining room. Yes, there is still laundry to be folded. Yes, our bathrooms are dirty. But today, we actually enjoyed the home we're trying to make (and yes, Eric did cross some items off his list and I made 3 hair bows).
How will you intentionally cherish your home this weekend?
