Signs of Life


Happy Friday!! I'm so grateful today. The sun came up again this morning...and a thousand other reasons, including the little people living under my roof who relentlessly make messes.

Instead of seeing imperfections as thorns in my decorating flesh, I want to open my eyes and see them as signs of life.  These messes all stem from gifts in my life.  I still clean the mud off shoes (or make my boys do it), but I also know that if a neighbor walked in and saw a trail of mud, I wouldn't need to be embarrassed.  Its just proof of lives being lived, and houses are for living.  My home is a reflection of our life, and life's messes can be gloriously beautiful. ~The Nesting Place

What's the runner of paper? --- You make messes look really beautiful. I have blobs of jelly, empty granola bar wrappers, broken action figure body parts...
