It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home. ~Author Unknown

Well, over at my dear friend Marci's blog today...she has Count Your Blessings Monday

So, today I am listing my home as the blessing I'm most thankful for today...

Home is a place not only of strong affections, but of entire unreserve; it is life's undress rehearsal, its backroom, its dressing room. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe

Where we love is home,Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. ~Jane Austen

My home isn't fancy. (I call it my little dollhouse, or my little nest) But it sure is comfortable. It is safe, and pleasant...a refuge and a haven. I am a true homebody ( as are my whole family!), so having a place like this is perfect balm for my soul.

Every house where love abides

And friendship is a guest,

Is surely home,

and home sweet home

For there the heart can rest.

~Henry Van Dyke

Amen to that!!!!! I love vacations and seeing new things, but sometimes the best part of being away is having a place to come back to!!!!
