Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Sunday Sayings

My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys."

♥I love this quote!.......... I did get my cast off.....Yeah!! My hand was sore! Which was a surprise to me? You really should go to Nauvoo. We went one time towards the end of Sept. and it was great! We did stay in motels, and it took two days to travel there, and two days back. ( If I had lots of time I would have broken that up into three days...LOL) We stayed in Kearny Neb the first night and Burlington Iowa the second night. ( which is only about 30 miles from Nauvoo) the next nights we stayed right in Nauvoo at the Nauvoo Family Inn....Our boys were able to do Baptisms in the Nauvoo Temple. It was so cool! I love Nauvoo! (Can you tell :-) )You should get your trip planned now!
