“The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.” ― Thomas MoreHave you ever felt like you were at home in someone else's house? I have, and I think it was due not only to the personalities of the people who lived in that house, but also to their ability to make the house feel like a home. Don't let this be a daunting idea to you. It is one that can be achieved in simple abodes and in the most sophisticated homes. Moreover, the key to doing this does not mean we all have to have top designer capabilities: we just need...
to practice the art of homemaking on a regular basis.
Usually, we like to apply the term homemaker to just women, but it is applicable to anyone that has a home. A man who is in charge of his home, either because he is single or this is his designated job, needs routines as much as anyone who takes care of a home. And from my own experience, I know that a simple routine is the best for people who have disabilities. However, it is not just people with chronic illness that need simplicity: busy people, children, elderly people, middle-aged people, depressed people, happy people -- they all need to have the comfort of order.
