It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 11, Page 4, Book 18

Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.

Humphrey Davy

Today I’m thankful to be Cozy

Things in themselves have no life in them.  A car can’t comfort or encourage you.  A house means nothing if there’s no life and love inside.

Joyce Meyer

My life is what I call cozy and comfortable.  Living a cozy life is much more than just making your environment comfortable and warm, more than the materialistic things. 

It's how we interact with others and in our beliefs. It’s a feeling of joy and happiness and the way we affect others in a positive way.  It’s calmness, peace of mind and positivity in everything we do.  It’s caring, compassion, selflessness and love.  

On my thankful list for today:

6490. for candy, a sweet treat is good
6491. for a day to relax, refresh and renew
6492. for soup that warms you up on a chilly day

When we live a cozy life we are comfortable with what we have and do. It’s like the feeling we get when a hot cup of chocolate warms us up on a cold chilly day.  It’s enjoying life’s simple pleasures and sharing them with others.

If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it.

There is nothing like a warm fire to kindle the feeling of coziness.

Wonderful post. I feel like I am in such a transitional space that I am having a hard time living a quiet and cozy life. Looking forward to that happening here before too long. Have a blessed Sunday- xo Diana

I'm loving your definition of cozy. Had I known it felt THIS good, I'd have tried getting here sooner. (*smile*)
