There are areas in my home that need new decor (mostly upstairs!), new furniture, ceilings painted and so on and on. We aren't in a position to do it all just now at all. The problem for me here is that I have been allowing myself to become unhappy about it all and am constantly looking at what is wrong with my home instead of what is right!
We have a roof over our heads! We have two spacious bedrooms, one of which the kids can share for several years to come, then we need to rethink! We have a beautiful bathroom with a shower I have always wanted! I have a downstairs toilet which is a blessing with toilet training kids! We didn't have central heating when we first bought the house and now we do!
A few years ago, the downstairs of our home was flooded as a result of local flash floods. It was a terrible mess which resulted in us all having to live with my lovely in laws for 5 months. The bottom of our home was ripped out and redone. Thankfully our home insurance covered all of this! We were richly blessed with a kitchen we would never have been able to afford while I stayed at home. A lovely living room and fresh decor all over the bottom of our home. Floorboards were replaced, a new stove, new plastering and so on.
I have included some before and after pictures of the work that went on in our house.
So I have no right whatsoever to be unhappy with my lot! Today I am making my home sing by remembering what is good about it and all the happy memories and trying to enjoy even having a home I can call my own!
