~Hearth and Home~

A House
A house is a structure of form; a space;
a relationship with space.
A structure of form;an architectural
design on a street: An address.


A conceptual layout of space with a roof: It has walls, floors, a stove, sinks
and drains. Closets; a flow plan.
It’s an ideal we seek.


A Family
 
‘A family is made of people who are bound together by birth, by law,

or by love.

‘A family consists of two
Or more people who live together or are
related by ancestry or marriage.
And we all come in different
sizes and shapes.’
 

~Hearth and Home~
 
A home is where we live our intimate
lives: It’s a bonding place between
two or more
 
It’s more than nooks and crannies
closets and drawers; it’s more than

a place to lie our head and
place our stuff
and clutter
 
A home is a sanctuary_ with a
fire in the hearth radiating
warmth and light
 
A home is a cheerful place
filled with family and
friends and games
and jokes and
laughter
 
It is a place of security; a place
of trust and respect:  It is a
place to hug and dance:
A place to love and
kiss and laugh_
to cry and
mourn
 
The home is a place of peace.
A quiet retreat: The hearth
the center point; that
welcoming place we
yearn for at the end
of a day or a
journey

The hearth
The center point; that
Welcoming place we
Yearn for at the end
Of a day or a
Journey
