When, exactly, does a structure become a home?
When the COO is signed? No, that's just man's inane bureaucracy. When the furniture gets moved in? That's only ocupancy. When the first mortgage bill arrives? Please.
A structure becomes a home when it's opened to friends, when it's shared with those who will find their way back with regularity, when it's infused with light and life and laughter. It doesn't need walls or a roof or running water, though these will come in time. To be a home it just needs our spirit.
We helped build a home Saturday night.
Many years of happiness, Robin and Sam. That's what we wish for you. In this home, many years.
