At the rainy day sale this past weekend...I came across this sweet little brown baby shoe...
Just one... It was in the booth of a dealer with a lot of old automobile junk... It looked so sad and lonely....so lost. I asked the dealer how much he wanted for it and he replied... "two dollars".
Two dollars for one shoe? No way. I left the booth.
But .....my heartstrings tugged....it was lost...it was lonely... ...it was sad... The mother in me could no longer leave a lost and lonely baby shoe than a lost child... That automotive junk dealer knew my weakness. :) Laura
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.
