There is beauty all around, when there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound, when there's love at home.
Peace and plenty here abide
Smiling sweet on every side
Time doth softly sweetly glide
when there's love at home

In the quilter's cottage there is joy, when there's love at home
Hate and envy ne'er annoy when there's love at home
Roses bloom beneath our feet
All the earth's a garden sweet
Making life a bliss complete
when there's love at home

Kindly heaven smiles above, when there's love at home
All the world is filled with love, when there's love at home
Sweeter sings the brooklet by
Brighter beams the azure sky
Oh! There's One who smiles on high
when there's love at home

So true. I grew up in grouchy, bicker house. I now live in happy house. The difference is a miracle.

I know just what you mean Lisapac - The difference is enormous. I try not to let those "old" feelings rise when things get a little difficult as it does in all families because it is not the same situation as when I was growing up. Thanks for that lovely poem Meli. Made me smile!

Thank you, but I can't take the credit. It's in my church's hymn book and has always been a favorite in our family. In fact, back in 1970 my mom sang it at an audition for a community production of "Hello, Dolly!" She was one of the extras

Please tell me, Meli, that you definitely wrote that! Fantastic. When you are published, may I get a signed copy to frame?

Oops, missed your second post. Your mother was beautiful.

Would LOVE to take credit, but I can't. However, Sandy, if you send me your address, I will happily send you the book I got it from!

I have long thought that your Mother was a Beautiful Soul - You are as well!

Love your mom's costumes! She was a pretty gal. Is she still living?
