Saturday was a frenzy of cleaning house and shopping for our meal to celebrate Chinese New Year. My husband did the bulk of the grocery shopping as he went to Chinatown to get the vegetables that he wanted to cook. By the end of the day, I had fulfilled my part of the bargain – our place was spic-and-span. Hubby had started cooking and I sat on the sofa reading while waiting for our son and nephew to arrive for the family dinner.
As I sat on the sofa, I looked out the window and saw that they were doing their work of keeping the chill at bay. I looked at my surroundings and felt a sense of comfort and happiness for what my husband and I had created – a home. A home in which we felt secure. A home in which we felt loved. A home in which the inhabitants felt happy.
This week I am grateful for my home. Not everyone is able to have a pleasant environment in which they can spend their time. I am lucky that I do.
