Good Manners

Every home has a story, and they are as vast and varied as the world is wide. But they all start with inspiration, and inspiration starts with our surroundings. That’s what home is. Family. Friends. A sense of place. An amazing view. It is all part of what makes a space a home because your home is where you truly live. As homeowners ourselves we understand that your best life begins with a home that inspires you.

“Give thanks for the little and you will find a lot”

— African Proverb

African Proverb: “Give thanks for the little and you will find a lot” Meaning: Someone has rightly observed that “The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have.” Making the most of everything is what the dictionary calls faithfulness.

By taking time to show your gratitude for the small things in life, you will open your eyes and heart to the tremendous amount you have to be grateful for.

If you’re not used to appreciating the little things, take baby steps. Start with being aware of those seemingly insignificant and trivial things. Make a mental note of one or two things a day that you appreciated. Maybe even start a gratitude journal and jot these items down each day.

Soon enough, you will notice that each moment, each day, offers us infinite gifts. Your list will grow, you will fill pages with your gratitudes. You might even need to start another journal.

Suddenly, you’ve found a lot.
