{Just a thought}

"I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize.
The first is gentleness;
the second frugality;
the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others
and keeps me from thinking more highly of myself than I should.
Be gentle and you can be bold;
be frugal and you can be liberal;
avoid putting yourself before others and you can
become a leader among people."
~ Lao-Tzu

This quote just made me think today, so posting.

Hope your day is wonderful.

These words could be written on my heart...I try to live in such a way too. I have been reading alot of Thomas Merton and he quotes Lao-Tse in his writings. Is the photo image of you? Looks like you. ox

The most wonderful thing about today is that I re-read your beautiful comments you left me on my blog the other day.

I don't get here nearly as often as I used to but only because my job has dramatically changed and I don't have the time to stop by to visit during the day anymore.....not because you are not on my mind.

I, too, feel like I know you and I celebrate the friendship and warmth you and I have shared though the bond of our blogs....amazing, isn't it?!

You are truly beautiful inside and out, my friend.

In my thoughts, always.....

love you,
