a house, a home

September 1, 2013

what makes a house a home?

is it two cars in the garage and a doggie by the front door?

is it the number of thanksgiving turkeys basted and christmas hams spiral cut?

or the christmas eve you spent hovering over the kitchen counter, slurping rotel dip up with tortilla chips, until santa paid a visit?

or is it the four chairs and everyone in their place (including hungry doggies), reuniting as a family around the dinner table?

or a bedroom that’s barely yours but designed to your exact specifications because your parents make a space for you in their home even though you have your own?

or is it the overstuffed couches and the nights you spent eating ice cream and watching family movies?

as my parents sell their home and hunt for a new one, i’m thankful for four walls but i’m more thankful for the four people that make our family a family and our house a home.

here’s to new adventures, mom and dad!  viva las vegas!
