"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

Hello dear friends and welcome to my HOME ~

HOME is a place where one can take refuge from the storms of life; all kinds of storms. For me right now, my HOME is a place where I can retreat and try to recover from my ailments.

I regret that I didn't get around for all my visits at my last HOME party. As some of you may know, I have been nursing a slipped disk as well as the flu. I have also been on some rather potent meds for my back so last week, I spent resting and trying to get well. This week I have seen some improvement but my back has a long way to go. We are still waiting to get the results of the MRI I had the other day. I am usuing a walker to get around and Hubby is doing all the housework as well as the cooking. He's a busy guy because he works at a full time job too.

Since I haven't been out and about and my life has been limited to my HOME, I decided to share some posies with you. Flowers just naturally bring a smile to my face and nothing says Spring like tulips.

I love tulips!

My son brought me a bouquet of beautiful white tulips but alas, I was too ill to get a picture of them.

Another beautiful bouquet in a Rose Chintz pitcher.

I usually don't get too personal on here but I thought I should let you all know how it has been with me lately. The past few weeks have been a bit of a nightmare and I am so glad to have flowers and hot cups of tea to sip on. I am thankful to have the dearest person on earth caring for my needs as he does his best to make me comfortable. Yes, even in the midst of this particular storm, I am thankful for my many blessings. I am HOME.

HOME is where your story begins. ~ Unknown
