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.

Gifted

Last week my friends Janis and Sue and I went to lunch and then to see the movie Julie and Julia. We enjoyed lunch and the movie very much. I met Janis through blogging almost a year ago (Grams) and Sue is a friend of Janis who doesn't have a blog but should. Anyway, whenever we get together they bring me presents. Aren't they the cutest? Sue vacationed in Illinois this summer and brought me back this adorable placemat. It looks really great on my round table with a bunch of sunflowers, don't you think? Janis made me this cute bracelet. She made it by flattening a spoon and using her metal letter punches for my name. Don't you love the heart charm? I love it so much.

I think making new friends through our blogs is one of the best things about blogging. I sure do love these cute girls. Thanks again Janis and Sue.
