Home Sweet Home

The Delia Mahon Collection

Delia Mahon - 5th or 6th class student


“Home sweet Home” is a very true saying.  We never realise the truth of those few words until we are away from home for some time, it is then we find how sweet our first home was.

No matter how humble our home is it has treasures for us which no other place can possess.  It is there our first joyous hours have been spent and there we have come to know what a parent’s love means.

No matter how fair the place is to which we go, we ever turn longing eyes to that sacred spot.  We long to come back again to see the place of our birth and to see once more those dear friends who made happy for us the first years of life.
