Since I am currently on vacation this week, my thoughts naturally turned to that subject for this weeks post. But "What do vacations have to do with our homes?", you may ask... Well, I feel they have a great deal to do with our homes. Remember, when we use that term, we aren't just talking about the structure called a HOUSE that you and your family live in. When we talk about our HOME we are referring really to what you have cultivated and created within those four walls and without. In other words...your family. It is of upmost importance that families take the time to just be together. Vacations are designed as a time for families to spend time together, right? Growing up, our family didn't always have the funds or time to take a "real" vacation. However, you don't necessarily have to travel to some far off exotic place in order to have vacation! Stay-cations are becoming more popular recently. If you are not able to go away for vacation, take the time to check out your local attractions and sights. You may be surprised at all the fun things there are to do in your area!
The most IMPORTANT thing, is taking the time out of your busy schedule to REALLY concentrate on a bonding time with your family. We get so busy going about our everyday lives that we fail to really enjoy those people under our own roof. Take the time to invest in your home today. There's no greater thing of value.
