What’s the square footage?
The age of the McMansion has become passé. The overblown contest of house size, “Who’s is bigger?”, has found it’s new location in the circular file of public consciousness.
Perhaps the time therefore has come to keep in mind that the size of the house matters least. What makes a house a home is not the square footage, it’s the memories made in the moments within it.
When I look back on the house I was raised in, for most of my early years, it wasn’t very big. It didn’t have any high ceilings. It didn’t have the latest flooring or the most stylish décor. What it did have was the magic of care, the essence of warmth and the security of people who loved me.
At a time in the world when so many people are having to re-evaluate what gives life meaning and what constitutes success, it is important to remember:
Size doesn’t matter…… it’s whatcha’ do with whatcha’ got.
