This past week, our whole extended family has been house-hunting. I'll post more about this later, but for now, here are some quotes related to the idea of what makes a house a home.
A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.
A house is a home when it shelters the body and comforts the soul.
It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home
A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.
--Dr. William A Ward
We labor to make a house a home, then every time we're expecting visitors, we rush to turn it back into a house.
For me, I can feel at home with my family in a hotel room. If I lived alone though, I can't imagine that place feeling like anything other than a house. Obviously, everyone is different; what makes you feel at home?
