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

This is a quote my husband uses at times. I hope he doesn't think I need to hear it! But it is so true.

I LOVE that saying. Wish I'd heard it in Jr. High when I was busy gulping down bottles of it.
