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

Sunday Sayings

 
 
"Life is good.  It is precious.  It is a great blessing.  Even on it's worst days.  And in it's deepest valleys you must remember the view from it's highest mountains.  You must not forget that happiness is a matter of perspective, not circumstance."  Bob Lonsberry

How true...we can't forget the big picture in all of this, not just the close-ups! Hope you have a wonderful 2013!

Well, I read this post to myself, then re-read it, letting it sink in...cuz I really need posts like this, then I read it out loud to my wonky teenager. He snorted and very knowledgeably declared you must have never had any worst days! Yeah, it's time for him to leave home while he still has a firm grasp on ALL knowledge! (Smile.) and really this year has been easier to remember the view from the top. Weve had some way low valleys that I thought we would NEVER climb out of with this last chick. Thank Heaven, for reals, that we are not there right at this moment. ( I need to go ground myself or something cuz, saying it out loud may jink us ) Happy new year Sue.

Good advice and one I need to remind myself of. I tend to forget the blessing side of things sometimes and only see the challenges.

So true, happiness is a matter of perspective or attitude.

I am so jealous of your Ikea kitchen with it's deep drawers!! Next time I have a kitchen that needs re-doing I will be going with an Ikea one!

Love this quote!
Goes right along with my personal goal, and "project happiness".

Hope this year is blessed, and full of happiness for you and your family.
