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. Thomas S Monson

"Everyone should carefully observe which way his heart draws him, and then choose that way with all his strength."
Hasidic saying

This is all anyone ever really needs to do (in my opinion!). The head is subservient to the heart, because God and love reside in your heart!
~Beautiful Mimi. Happy Sunday to you.

Hi Sue....I just love the comment you left on my blog Thank You!!...growing up in the 50's was really something...A much happier time for sure....me and the Boss talk about that all the time. The old pictures are alteast a wonderful remembrance of that time...How funny about your Mom...my mother was one wacky lady...My H.S. friends would come over the house just to see her..I would go out on a date to come home and find my best friend still at the house...she would always do my mothers hair for her..it was very funny...and my dates..they enjoyed talking to her more then me!! She looked as she got older exactly like Betty White and everytime we see Betty on t.v. me and daughter say...."There's Grandma"...Did you see the link I had to the post about her and my father?

Choices and attitudes can sure sure change a life and directions one takes.
As we love and serve with our youth I pray and constantly and tell them the choices of today will make huge differences in their tomorrows. Follow you heart (and the still small voice:)
Love this one!

Ps You asked me if I had caught up...nope and I won't. It is YOU who has to do the catching. We are close though... 1951 :D

Cindy Geilmann said...

My sweet Mimi - you are always right! I know your right. That choice has made all the difference in my life.

I busy with grandkids this week. My daughter has had her tonsiles out. What are you doing next week?
Let's meet at Brenda's.

Off topic, but in response to your comments on my bluebonnet photos, YES, they are lupines also, so they all look similar. I've seen flowers in Europe in different colors that look similar, guess they are all just a different variety of lupine.

Beautiful flowers and a beautiful quote, Mimi.
