have a great weekend...


"Give me work to do, give me health, give me joy in simple things. Give me an eye for beauty, a tongue for truth, a heart that loves, a mind that reasons, a sympathy that understands. Give me neither malice nor envy, but a true kindness and a noble common sense. At the close of each day, give me a book and friend with whom I can be silent." -S.M. Frazier


My daughter sent me this quote yesterday - thought you'd all enjoy it as well.  Hope you have a fun weekend and I'll see ya'll on the flip side.  Don't forget the enter the yummy giveaway!

I have to echo Felicity - it resonates with me as well. And for me I would add that I would show the grace to others that I myself have been shown.

Happy Weekend Everyone!
