Moved furniture around today, and this piece finally went up on the wall., a photo by cocopuff1212 on Flickr.
A house is a shelter, first and foremost. It keeps us dry and keeps us warm. It would be nice if it isn't too small, great if it's prettily decorated. But its most important function is to shelter us from the elements. To keep us safe.
I am grateful for mine, and taking care of it is my way of saying "thank you". I can't imagine ever hiring a housekeeper.
