Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow.
The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
- Abraham Lincoln
When Katie is not around....
I wander around our yard looking for something beautiful.
"Well, I - I think that it - it wasn't enough to just want to see Uncle Henry and Auntie Em - and it's that - if I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard."
I am content in my quite little world,
95% of the time.
That 5% of discontent is painful.
I am thankful.
This is my life.
I will not even look at that discontent today.
I turn my back on it.
I will be thankful. I will remember my many blessings.
I have so much to be thankful for.
