"Home! ... how much it all meant to him, and the special value of some such anchorage in one's existence... It was good to think he had this to come back to, this place which was all his own, these things which were so glad to see him again and could always be counted upon for the same simple welcome." ~ Kenneth Grahame, The Wind In The Willows

"Home is where the heart is,
The soul's bright guiding star.
Home is where real love is,
Where our own dear ones are.
Home means someone waiting
To give a welcome smile.
Home means peace and joy and rest
And everything worthwhile."

Dear Monica:

What lovely quotes about home! It reminds me of that Victoria magazine cover that I've always loved that says "The Pure Joy of Being Home" --

There's no place like home!

Lots of love,

Monica, I haven't stopped by your blog in a little while and saw this post about home. It's funny - I just posted a quote about home, too, on my blog! I suppose it's that time of year where our thoughts turn back to making our home cozy and warm. I love your blog!
