What Is Home To You?

When I was a little girl home was my safe place. I came from a large family. There were seven siblings total. My youngest sister died at 6 weeks due to heart complications. But I remember growing up in that house full of noise and love. There is nothing better than the memories of home.

My older sister, myself, and my two younger brothers. My sister was only 1 year old in the cover photo with my parents and two older brothers!

My dad was a WWII veteran and he was a man of little words. In fact, if he spoke to anyone in our neighborhood he would have their undivided attention just because they were so shocked that he opened his mouth to speak. He was a wise man, though not from schooling. He became sick with tuberculosis when he was 8 years old and was schooled from home by my grandmother after that. He and my grandpa and my Mom’s brother built our first home themselves. It was destroyed in a tornado when I was five years old. When I was older it was not uncommon to find my dad sitting in his favorite chair, relaxing, and reading the encyclopedia. I once asked him why he always read the encyclopedia and his answer still resonates in my mind when I don’t want to take the time to learn something new.

“How will you know what others are telling you is true if you don’t learn about it for yourself?”

And that is what I ask you, future home buyers and home sellers. Have you learned everything you need to know before you embark on this journey of home ownership or the selling of your home?

Please come back to my blog to see if anything I have posted is relevant to what you need to know. If it’s not there, ask me if I can write about it and explain it.


See you later!
