I just bet you wonder what I am talking about!!
Until recently, I wouldn’t have had a clue about rubber homes and I had never even heard of any such thing before. But, I was speaking to the grandmother of a childhood friend of mine, and she referred to memories of her own rubber home, and now I find myself longing for one of my own.
A rubber home is the result of a magical phenomenon that will transform your house into the size necessary to accomodate as many or as few loved ones within it as the time or situation dictates. In other words, if the occaision arrises to open your door and your arms to welcome extra roommates, that the home will stretch like rubber to always provide the means or the space needed.
Consequently, the same home will shrink to become comfortable as the family it shelters needs less and less space. This is not a physically changing home but rather a mentally evolving one…
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know that no matter how big or small your home is in reality, that it will always be rubber enough to be just right for you and whomever you open your door and arms to welcome within.
On the other hand, maybe I should trade my home for a rubber heart instead.
