I was just sitting here sipping a cup of tea and thinking about how cooperative and agreeable my husband was yesterday when we went to the church sale......He was actually very sweet. And then he did something this week for me that I have been asking for a while.......he glued the broken ear back onto my porcelain bunny. And then he actually took apart the faucet in the bathroom to repair the drip.....never mind that Brother Biff The Plumber still needs to make a house call.
My point is......don't you just love it when a guy "fixes" something for you? When he takes out a hammer or chisel or saw and makes something right again?
It kind of makes me feel romantic.......
Like....maybe I'm being taken care of a bit....appreciated perhaps....pampered just a tad.....
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
