It was a long day today, but I'm determined to stick to this 31 day challenge!
My challenge for you today is very simple: look for beauty in the imperfect. I was listening to the audio book version of Laura Ingalls Wilder's book, On the Banks of Plum Creek with the girls today, and I was so struck by Ma's reaction to their dugout home. If I had been in her shoes, faced with the challenge of turning a literal hole in the ground into my home, I would have cried.
But Ma responds by making her simple home beautiful. She cleans in, tidies it, and personlizes it with their simple things.
But what makes that humble dugout a home is...her. Her love, her gentleness, her drive to find beauty in everything - that is what makes for a home.
I hope I can be like Ma.
