Words inspire me – they bring tears to my eyes – they breathe life into an otherwise empty space. For me, I depend on them in my daily life. Words do a lot to make my house a home. Whether it be through books, through the words we say to each other, or lunch box notes to my kids … words are love.
To show my love, and my love of words, I have a “changing chalkboard” in my house. Actually, I have two: a big fireplace board, and a smaller kitchen board. On them, I like to convey a message – a though – a feeling. I hope my family and friends take away the same things I do from these little messages – You are loved. Life is important. Be happy. Live where you are. Gratefulness is key. You know, things like that. Last week, i quoted a song – a simple, old, perfect song. This week, my message is simple. Life is the mountains is good. Period.
