Monday Moment





Monday Moment
“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.” ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder


Wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places,

  7. Thank you for sharing this wise quote, Brenda. Perhaps it's time for me to re-read the Little House in the Prairie books again...

  8. Dearest Brenda - I started reading the quote and immediately thought, 'Laura Ingalls Wilder' and I was right. She had such a delightful way of finding the silver lining and gratitude in each moment. Whatever is in that little cup sure looks delicious! I am guessing - Chai tea....Hope your week is filled with precious moments. Hugs xo Karen
