Home

Today’s blog challenge prompt is home. I could show you a pic, but I’ve done that many times before. Instead, I want to share the lyrics to a Depeche Mode song that D recently brought to my attention. It perfectly captures what it feels like to live in this house and to be home. Home is so much more than just a structure.

Here is the house
Where it all happened
Those tender moments
Under this roof
Body and soul come together
As we come closer together
And as it happens
It happens here
In this house

And I feel your warmth
And it feels like home
And there’s someone
Calling on the telephone
Let’s stay home
It’s cold outside
And I have so much
To confide to you

With or without words
I’ll confide everything

Here is the house
Where it all happened
Those tender moments
Under this roof
Body and soul come together
As we come closer together
And as it happens
It happens here
In this house

So we stay at home
And I’m by your side
And you know
What’s going on inside
Inside my heart
Inside this house
And I just want to
Let it out for you

And I feel your warmth
And it feels like home
And I feel your warmth
And it feels like home

Here is the house
Where it all happened
Those tender moments
Under this roof
Body and soul come together
As we come closer together

Tonight we were playing Rock Band and Freya asked to do a “brother/sister duet” with Jackson and it was the cutest thing ever.  She also told me she wants to go see DMB next summer!! (She loves So Much To Say). We bought Jackson new shoes tonight and she’s trying to teach him to tie them. I love watching their relationship flourish. These kids make me so happy. I’m so glad I got to have this time with them. ❤️
