I found this little wooden, hand painted sign several years ago in a thrift store and have always enjoyed it. Every time I look at it, I am reminded how thankful I am to have, not just a house, but a HOME.
It is cold in West Texas this morning...22 degrees. brrrrrrrr

Try to stay warm on this precious Sunday!

Hello dearest BJ:-) Finally here to catch up on all your's slow going trying to get caught up with everyone but I'm getting there! lol I've so enjoyed reading your last few posts and oh my, I had tears reading the story behind your daughter's wedding dress...such a precious Christmas present from her hubby!! That truly is special! Looks like the grandkids got some mighty fine presents:-) I would have loved to go to that Candlelight at the Ranch...from the pictures, it looks absolutely delightful. Also love those black and white dishes, I've never seen those before! Your HOME sign is adorable as well:-) xoxo

Good Afternoon BJ,
You got lunch ready yet? LOL. I didn't get up till 10:45a.m. I'm just now no my second cup of coffee. LOL. I love your sign you have. I love the colors of it too. And you are so right, a house is not a house, it's a HOME. HOME is where the HEART is. "THANK YOU" so much for sharing this with us. I will wish you a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" today. Oh, I will be back tomorrow as well to sing to you. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great Sunday. May God Bless You and Yours. Stay inside and stay warm.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
