So if you happen to drop into my house, I can guarantee you it won't be camera ready, but you will be welcomed in anyway, because the evidence is seen everywhere of our life.
The pieces I so strategically arranged on my newly painted coffee table...............
Will probably be found where I recovered them
Yes, someone decided he could decorate better than Grand Mommy and she later found them
That is right...lined up on Grand Mommy's purse
Forget the well organized kitchen cabinets
He loves the plastic cabinet and spends play time sorting through and stacking cups. Well organized "NO!" cabinets aren't worth the price of missed memories.
Even the bathroom leaves behind evidence that this is a Grand Mommy's house, where she allows her sons and grandsons to be creative more than clean.
Someone left behind their art tools.
And just who needs, "All Toys Put Back Where They Belong?"
These cars just warmed my heart, left behind after a day of play at Grand Mommy's house, lined up on my stereo speakers.
Sushi on the floor, proves that a special night with my youngest breaks all house rules.
Life is just too short for possessions to own us. Life is too short to spend so much time saying, "No!" in order to keep a camera ready house.
So, now you are warned. My door is always open, come on it!
I won't apologize anymore for our lived in space..............because Memories
Are More Valuable than An Impressive Home, full of things that will rot.
I pray my home always shows evidence of those who come through and enjoy life!!
That is the story I want to tell, more than camera ready.
