Wherever is Your Heart



We went to see the last installment of The Hobbit movies over Christmas break.  There was a line near the end that was lovely.  And apparently misquoted everywhere because I tried to find it for you and came up with several versions.  And the version in the book just wasn’t quite the same.
Here’s the one I liked the best:

If more people valued home above gold, this world would be a merry place.
And what does that really mean, that concept of home?

Family
Friends

Feeling loved
Being comfortable in who you are

And in a world full of comparison traps-who has more money and stuff, who is the better mommy, who is more fit, it is easy to forget about the basics.  At least it is for me.
I get caught up in my head and forget that this is what life is really about. 

There is beauty and joy in simplicity.
A warm day in the winter.

The sunshine on my face.
Comfort with family and friends who get me.

The quiet clicks of knitting needles.
A peaceful moment.

Home.
