Friday Potpourri

Today I am breathing a sigh of relief

it has been a week of ups and downs
there were times that I could not wait to get home
to my safe haven

which leads me to today's post
what does home mean to you?

is it a bouquet of flowers on the table

a good cuppa hot tea

your favourite nook or cranny

to me it is being surrounded by the familiar
pictures ~ smells ~ things that you love
and that bring you comfort

comfort food means home

along with your best loved linens
whether it is an old quilt or the newest puffy comforter

why all this talk about home today
because yesterday morning Mom came home from the hospital

oh happy day

I wanted her to come here for a week or so
but she wanted to go home

can't say I blame her

she went in on the 27th of January
and spent 27 days

she is doing so well
and all she wants right now is a bath
so I will head over there tonight
and grant her, her wish

Wishing you all a wonderful week-end
full of comfy cozy dreams and wishes

It means my blog Lori !!!!!!!!!! haha
It actually means all of the above to me that last photograph and I am so pleased for you all that your mum is out of hospital and in the comfort of her own HOME.
I'm having a virtual cocktail with Cathi tonight so, I'll have one for you and your mum too. Lots of love and, once again, wonderful news about your mum. XXXX

What great news! I can just imagine how much better your mom feels now. I am so happy for you both!

I love this post too... Home should be our safe haven - I say that all the time. I love having my home and the opportunities to make it my perfect place on earth.

Love you sweets, have a great weekend. I hope it is filled with peace, rest, and good smiles with your mom!


So glad to hear your mom is home, Lori. I pray for her continued recovery. I always recover better at home.

I have been travelling for 3 weeks and am glad to be home ... my bed, my shower, my favorite cup of tea, my books, my honey ... all of the things you mentioned, too.

Home Sweet Home.
