"Put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families. So much sin could be avoided if our people really loved their homes."
- Mother Teresa

 This quote has spoken to me more than any other words.  Ever.  
I want this for my children and my family. 

It is pure beauty.

(I have been unable to substantiate this quote is Mother Teresa's.  The words remain powerful, regardless of provenance.)

That is a nice quote! I read a book called "Making Your Home a Spiritual Refuge" once and it suggested things like cooking and eating at home to make it your family's spiritual refuge. I wonder if you've found other things to make your home a place your kids love? I can tell from your pictures that you've got a good sense for interior design, that must help.
