Why the title and why the anonymity


You may (or may not) have wondered why ' Like sunshine in the home' as a blog title. Well, there's nothing like sunshine lighting up the rooms of a home. It makes me cheerful. I think that's why when it's a dull-day I put on a warm lamp and the fire. I long for the sunshine to enter in.

I'm not a huge sun worshipper, that is I'm not one for lying out in the sun. I love a good downpour of rain. I love being indoors when there is a storm raging - it make me appreciate the cosyness of home. But there's nothing like the sun streaming in through the windows.

I chose the title because that's what I hope to be, sunshine in the home. Ha, I'm not half the time when I'm rampaging around the house shouting, "Who didn't flush the loo?", "Why is there orange peel on the stairs?" and other End.Of.The.World issues. But I pray and hope that in all the darkness and horridness the world often brings, my children will be warmed and cheered in the home. To feel safe and loved.

I remember my mother's prayers
and they have always followed me.
They have clung to me all my life.
~Abraham Lincoln

The other thing you might have wondered is why I left my other blog and went all cloak n' dagger anonymous. Well, I have no doubt watched too many episodes of Criminal Minds, but when some anonymous person visited my other blog and started pin-pointing where I lived I got all of a nervous.

  3. I just stumbled on to your blog! I love it! I agree about the sunshine streaming in the windows...it is a delight! :) I also agree about being cautious! I had a guy comment on my blog that upset me a little....I decided I needed to remove what state I was from and removed my email adrs....like to be a little elusive for that reason.

    I hesitated in the very beginnning of blogging....it is not quite as protected as facebook...but yet I love the beautiful blogs out there and wanted to be a part of it!

    Hugs, Carolyn ~ Cottage Sunshine
