The Heart of the Home

From the South Bronx to Southern Michigan

When I was raising my children in the projects of the south Bronx, we prayed nightly for a home to call our own. I was finally able to buy that home in 1994 and now I want to remodel it. The kitchen has very few cupboards and it is too crowded for two people to fit comfortably in it. I feel almost guilty for being unhappy in the slightest, because I do, after all have a house now and it is in Michigan. I was able to move my children away from the Bronx and to a much safer neighborhood. God is good! 

Isn't it human nature to want to remake our surroundings?

We are creatures of comfort after all. I admit it. I have been looking online for contractors who can make my dreams come true. A girl can dream, can't she?   Currently I am the one who is responsible for all the kitchen chores. My husband gets aggravated by the tightness of the kitchen and turns around and walks back out leaving me with the cooking and cleaning. I grew up in a home with a country kitchen. Grandma had one too. We would all sit at the kitchen table and play cards after finishing the dishes. The kitchen was the heart of our homes so I am frustrated that mine cannot accomodate our large family.

Maybe your kitchen is just the way you like it.

Maybe there is something else about your home that you are dissatisfied with? Let me share a site with you that I found while on my internet journeys. It is called Style My House and they are currently running a $10,000 give away and 50% discounts on local contractors. With all the people out of work, I would love to win the money and give someone a job, while I am getting my kitchen redone.
