Just recently, I have noticed a tremendous difference in my husband and son’s personality when they come home and I have actually cooked a home-cooked meal. Not only are they very excited, but it makes the home more of an inviting place to be. I know that you have noticed that there is a difference in bringing home sacks from fast food restaurants and sitting in front of the television, as opposed to, placing food on a “real” plate and eating together as a family in the kitchen or dining room table.
I have been studying about how to make my home more comfortable, peaceful, and inviting for the family. The home is our place of solace and joy. And there are certain things that you can do to make sure that everyone is excited to be at home with the family.
Now, I am not a GREAT cook, but you really don’t have to be in order to make meals for your family special. It doesn’t matter if you are making sandwiches, pasta, or a formal dinner. It is the love that went into making it AND the family time spent together, that counts the most.
Winter is a perfect time to start this project for your family because most of you will be spending a lot of time indoors.
What things have you done or changed to make your home a haven?
