The Country House

I love to shop….I shop alot online and of course, I get catalogs…yes…I have started my Christmas shopping…but tonight I am at work…looking at one of my favorite catalogs…I LOVE the Country House….it is filled with little things for ….yep…you got it… a country house…

I like baskets and old raggedy ann dolls…and I love little pictures or wooden blocks that look old and tattered yet say or have thoughts that just make you smile….I have a few around my home…reminding me of what is important….what is not…

thought I might share some….straight from the country house pages….

“When you stop believing in Santa….you get underwear”
(this would be for my daughter, this is the first year at my house without Santa…yep…she found out)

“Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb
but how well you BOUNCE.”

“A true friend warms you with her presence, trusts you with her secrets, and remembers you in her prayers.”

“Make it Merry”

“Christmas…Have good in your heart and then give it away”

“I cant promise that I’ll be here for the rest of your life…but I can promise that I’ll love you for the rest of mine…”

“Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here, we should DANCE…”

“Many people miss their share of happiness not because they never found it, but because they didn’t stop to enjoy it.”

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending. “(one of my personal faves.)

“Enjoy the little things in life…for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things…”

“Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didnt know you left open…”

“Nobody listens to me til I fart…”(yea…kinda gross but its in there..lol)

“You cant fix stupidity…”

“Eat ice cream and run naked…”(made me smile)

“The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the memories we’ve made along the way..”

“Raising kids is like being pecked to death by a chicken…”

“Dont tell God how big your storm is…tell your storm how big God is…”

there are more….lots of holiday ones right now….but I guess I am sharing them because now that the holiday season is upon us…

Be happy and thankful….share of your hearts with others….and remember how even if you are facing challenges….find the blessings in your life….cherish them…each moment…

My last little sign from my catalog tonight is one I used to dislike….but a friend shared a poem with me….about love…making me love this lil saying…

“IT IS WHAT IT IS”…
