For over 20 years, I have done the daily grind of going to work and punching the time clock. We are not rich and struggle, but the wife and I always seem to make it through. One thing that helped me along the way was not just returning to the house but that I can come home.
A home is where you relax. A home is where you can put your feet up. A home is where you can live. The wife and I love working in the kitchen. Something about cooking for the one you love. Some like the living room, watching movies In a large comfy chair. Bedroom or Bathroom, the right home decor goes a long way to helping you handle the day's stress. I learned that.
A house is made with bricks and beams, but a home is made with hopes and dreams.
This is not just a catchy saying but an ideal that helps keep me going when it is tough.
