Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.
I was out of town for 2 weeks so to be back puts my home in a different perspective. Upon walking in, I was surprised to see how itsy bitsy my house yet cozy and manageable. Also being away from home and coming back makes me notice which areas are messy, and which areas are neat ~ I’ve been trying to declutter and organize drawers ~ a late spring cleaning if you will.
The clock was a DIY project my husband made – he twisted wire to make Arabic Numbers for the clock, and adds a personalized touch to our home. The cushion covers/wall hanging are handmade fabrics from Pakistan so if you look at the cushions carefully, you may see human error. I have a lot of artists in my family and the painting in the back is one my grandmother’s brother Mr. Wahab Jaffer made and he is a famous artist in Pakistan.
Hoping to savor my days at home, and to not get too attached to possessions, but to the things that matter.
“My Lord! Build for me a home with You in Paradise” (Quran 66:11).
