Home Sweet Home

This morning was a little rushed.  We all woke up slightly late, and everyone was not moving through their tasks as quickly as I would have liked.  I worked really hard to be patient and calm as I asked them to eat their breakfast for the twentieth.  In the middle of the hustle and bustle of it all, I looked up and watched McGuire across the room.  He let out a deep, contented breath, closed his eyes and said, "I love this place."

And then I stopped.  I smiled as I looked at each of our children and said a silent prayer of gratitude for having them in our home and as part of our family.  I, like McGuire, love this place we call home and I am grateful for the safe haven it provides our family from the world.
