Yesterday, we worked on making our homes sound a little more sanctuary-like. I was definitely more aware of noise than usual, how about you? Since we are on the subject of our senses, let's just take it a step further and discuss "touch."
What does your home feel like?
Do you have soft towels and fresh sheets? Those are the first things that make me say, "ahhh!" I think of warm blankets, cool air conditioners, comfy socks, favorite T shirts, plump pillows and my heavenly bed. Wait, lots of those things involve napping and sleeping, don't they?? Oops.
Sun streaming through windows, books with fine pages, cuddly stuffed animals, the afghan placed over a chair. A throw rug by the kitchen sink to cushion my feet. Bubbles in a bath to soothe my skin. Soft cats and furry dogs....
There are so many things that fill our daily lives with pleasure, but it's easy to overlook them - especially when we get busy.
Today's Small Thing is to celebrate the sense of touch: the things that make your home feel good. Ask your children what their favorite thing to feel is and experience it with them. Put extra softener in with your towels or line-dry some sheets if you can. Plump some pillows, fluff the blankets, take a bubble bath...you could even explore the sense of touch with your husband. Huh? Notice the things that feel nice and see if there are ways that you can improve how they feel. Simply be aware of how this sense affects your sanctuary today.
