I buy myself bouquets of flowers. It sounds so silly, and a little desperate, but its not because my husband doesn’t buy me flowers. In fact, he buys me flowers all of the time. Its quite sweet. He’s alway surpassesed my expectation when it comes to flowers. I thought, before I was married, I would get flowers on anniversaries and maybe birthdays. No, he brings them home almost every few weeks. For no reason.
So, why do I buy myself flowers? Its just because I like beautiful things. I also burn candles when no one is home. I spend a lot of my time at home. We homeschool and I am a stay-at-home momma. So, for the past eight years my home has become my “office” and my “workplace.”
We won’t get into the dynamics, or the fact that I struggled for the first two years of being at home. I’ll only say, that over the past two years, I’ve learned to embrace the space I am placed. God has placed me here. In this space, and buying flowers and lighting candles (even when no one is coming over for a visit) makes me feel safe and warm and loved. So, I’ll keep doing it. Bouquets of flowers might not be your thing. But what makes you smile? Can you start doing it for yourself? You are worth it. No matter if you work out of the home, in the home, or are simple going to school.
Think about the space. And embrace your place! Embrace where you are. You aren’t there by accident. O, my friend – you are NOT here by chance or outside circumstances. God has placed you here. Embrace the space where you are placed.
