Speaking My Peace

Mixed Messages

Can you guess which front porch sign I chose and which one my husband installed later? The first time a solicitor presented afterwards, he was surprised and a bit offended. Following a second salesman wanting to give an estimate for some service or other, my husband was really irritated. He’d planned to ask for a beer but hadn’t gone through with it. He would next time, though. For sure. Gonna do it. A couple days later, the opportunity arose. When the door opened, alas, it was a young girl selling cookies. 😆😆😆

I wondered, one day not long ago, what my house says about me. I’ve had current paint colors and decor for quite a while, but I used to be able to paint the walls myself; so, I don’t necessarily want to redecorate. I also don’t want my home to look like it’s frozen in time. I decided to go out in my front yard, starting there to walk through, viewing living and dining room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and deck with fresh eyes. I wasn’t expecting my home to speak to me so clearly, well, not after the confusion of front porch signs.

My home definitely spoke to me and I was so pleased with the message of love communicated to everyone who enters. Wall colors? May ask my husband to clear cobwebs from corners of high ceilings but, as far as painting goes, I don’t feel compelled to add that to the honey-do list. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised and content with our home’s expression of love, both literally and figuratively. ♡

What does your home say about you?
