But A House Is Not A Home… ( written 2006 )

The house has a hollow, empty sound; the door slams way too loud. Since I took down all my drapes, my paintings; took away the rugs and furnishings, it looks barn-like, drab gray and institutional.

Hard to believe so many family dinners were enjoyed here, sick kids recovered here, grandbabies stayed over, wounded animals tended, flowers and herbs planted and harvested, laundry hung out to dry…and now I am leaving it.

Here’s the question – Why?

FIVE REASONS WHY HAVING KIDS IS INSANE

There are over seven billion people on Earth.  Why are people still having kids? Reproducing children is not taken nearly as seriously as it should be  in this world.
