where children sleep

I love our house.

The first time I saw it, I thought it was too good to be true and there was no way we would get to live in such a wonderful home. I was overjoyed when we actually got it!

But after 2 1/2 years, the novelty has worn off and I have a whole list of things I'm not happy with in our house.

This was a really eye-opening piece that made me, once again, so grateful for what we have.

Our lawn is full of weeds and dying, but my children have a safe, fun place to play.

The bathroom fixtures are outdated, but we have access to clean, hot water.

The girls' bedrooms are small, but they have a room full of toys and a warm bed.

And thinking we are goint to outgrow this house in a few years is silly--larger families live in smaller homes all over the world.

The only way I'll ever let you guys move is if it's within the ward boundaries! :)

Thank you for posting this. I have been griping about the size of my house and petty complaints for days now. This puts things very much into perspective.
