The Gallery - Home



This heart hangs in my favourite little nook in the hallway; I pass it wherever I go in the house...







our house isn't our ideal house
or our perfect house
but it is our home.

our home is where we are,
where are hearts are,
where we thrive.

our home is where we play,
where we giggle and laugh,
where we grow.

our home is messy but alive,
photos adorn the walls,
children's paintings, too.

our home needs to adapt and grow,
be more accessible with ramps and wider doors,
to be more eilidh friendly

our home is a humble building
but full of abundant love
and we are grateful
for many don't have
a place to call
home.









According to Crisis:
85,000 households were officially recognised as newly homeless by their local authority in England in 2008.
40,000 households were officially recognised as newly homeless in Scotland in 2007/08.
Approximately 500 people sleep rough outside on any one night.

Unfortunately studies show that homeless numbers are expected to rise over the next few years.  We are lucky to have a place to call home, please consider donating to Crisis or Shelter and spread a little love and hope around.




Please grab a coffee, take a seat and head over to wander around The Gallery today at Sticky Fingers....
