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

What a lovely quote. I am looking for a quote for the last day of school - I always weave a quote into my last lesson in the hope that my students will think of it and me as they go on to high school.

This quote is going on my list of possibilities. I have several and haven't quite decided. It is a pretty important decision this year because I am retiring.

I agree with this completely ...I think we, as parents, owe it to our children to teach them independence.

how true is this quote Mimi??? I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a mother and grateful for their independence even if I sometimes wish they never would have left home. LOL!
