My husband has always been a lake person having grown up in a family with 8 children he spent great summers relaxing and playing with cousins around the water’s edge. I was always more of a beach person but since we live near a beautiful lake near the Smokey Mountains I have grown to love his passion. The fun with our children, a chance to have extended family visit and most of all a place to relax and see God’s glory has meant so much to me. I feel closer to heaven whenever we are at our lake home.

The one really special part of being at the lake is it draws the children and grandchildren in the summer months. My sister teasingly calls our lake home the Bed and Breakfast. Yes there are times when I get tired and long for alone time but that does come sometimes too quickly. i always feel nostalgic when the kids leave.

I do have a lot of sheets to wash and dusting, sweeping, mopping, etc when the house grows empty but it somehow seems more therapeutic than my ordinary housework. For one often times my husband is right there with me and second I am more relaxed at the lake with company than I am at our home in the city.

.....well this world, truly, is a small place indeed, beause I live but 100 feet or so in my parent's cottage built back in 1956 and although I have no family this heritage home, if you will, is like my family with its history and roots. Yours is an amazing story too -the pictures are so lovely and as you can imagine I could relate to this hub subject so very well.

So nice to meet you and yes I have the two luckiest cats in the world - one runs freely, Little Miss Tiffy, the cat in my picture, was my mum's cat; and Mister Gabriel, my younger deaf cat goes for walks with me along the beach and lakeshore road.
