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?
Feeling lovedBeing 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.
