Over at Five Minute Friday...where we are given one word to write about for 5 minutes..the word for the week was WELCOME....
Welcome
WELCOME....
After nearly a year and a half of  our home being attached to wheels (aka..Motor home), and 2 1/2 months of serious searching we walked opened the door to a new home. Not a new construction but new to us.
In the 48 years of this adventure called MARRIAGE I have learned that there are many forms a home can take. We have lived in a small camp trailer, a camper, a tent (with 4 children and a dog) a motor home and SEVERAL houses made of wood. I have learned that as long as LOVE abides no matter the size or type of construction,  the WELCOME sign will always find its' post.
The table  may be set with the finest china or a paper plate, but a meal served with love and shared conversation will speak WELCOME to any guest.
So it is with a heart bursting with thanksgiving I bid you WELCOME to my new home. The coffee is always on the tea pot will be set to brew, the door swings wide and LOVE ABIDES HERE!!

  1. Beautiful post! It really is true that no matter what the circumstances or where home may be, as long as love abides a home will always feel welcoming. Many Blessings, your #fmfparty friend.

  2. Laura, First of all thank you and congratulations for your 48 year-old marriage. I say thank you because it inspires me in my 24 year-old one. :) Secondly, I loved your post. We so quickly forget that as long as we serve love, everyone will feel welcome. Beautiful. Happy Friday! #fmfparty
