“The best things in life are nearest:
Breath in your nostrils,
light in your eyes,
flowers at your feet,
duties at your hand,
the path of right just before you.
Then do not grasp at the stars,
but do life’s plain, common work as it comes,
certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.”
–Robert Louis Stevenson

Thank you for the lovely pictures. It was just as I had pictured in my mind of your place. I love the trees and all the beautiful colors they provide year after year. God is in his handiwork, we just have to stop and admire it. Thanks for sharing and making my heart happy tonight!

love it!


Thank you for finding so many wonderful and inspiring quotes and bringing them all together here – as well as sharing all of you own writing. I’ve got my dose of inspiration for the afternoon and think I’ll go and build my very first compost bin now :)
