I don't want you to miss the all important heart of this post, because here it is...
I need to be content
I'm going to say that again. I need to be content with...
...where we are in our stage of life
...our current limitations for decorating (time, financial, practical)
...my amazing home, that is a home because we live there, not because of how it looks.
I know that this is a "for now" content, and that these things are going to change, then I can use my discontent as motivation to change, when I have the proper tools to do it. For now, this is where we are, this is what I have to work with. Honestly, I love our family and wouldn't change it for anything. Right now, I need to be thankful that we have furniture (even if it is mostly hand-me downs), thankful that we have a roof over our head, thankful for what we have, and not discouraged by what we don't.
I want to encourage you in that today readers. Be thankful for what you do have, not discouraged by what you don't.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them.
