Quote of the Week

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.  
- John Burroughs

Too often the busyness of our lives overwhelms our senses, and we become bogged down in the daily grind. We need to adorn our lives with a little more of that which is precious to us, whether it is enjoying a good book, taking a long walk though the woods, or simply letting the sun shine upon our faces.


  1. Yesterday I dropped EVERYTHING to go in a bass boat with a co-worker...taking my daughter and simply enjoying nature and life. I felt guilty but it was so worth it!

  2. This is so beautiful and so true! Smell the roses indeed!

  3. A beautiful quote and so much truth and wisdom in your words, Linda.

  4. Dearest Linda, I adorn my life today by reading your words from your beautiful heart! A sweet simple pleasure to "visit" with you and connect.


  5. I think I am going to follow your advice here!

  6. Linda,

    So right you are! Lately, I've been enjoying sitting outside in the evening...just watching yard life. It's so nice.

    This quote is a good reminder of the importance of enjoying what's precious to us, while we can:~)

    Great quote selection!

  7. Katherine- Such fun - don't feel guilty, just enjoy it!

    Linda- There always seems to be more to do, see and think about than there is time. So we just have to make to.

    Talon- As busy as our lives are, we should all take heed.

    Jannie- Thank you. It's nice to visit with you, too.

    meleah rebeccah- You go girl!

    Sara- We always did that as a family when I was growing up. Late in the evenings we would see what we called hoppy toads come out. Some were tiny. We don't see toads too often anymore.
