A Thought...

I've started a new book called "Simple Retreats for a Woman's Soul" and this lovely thought was on the very first page......


"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY
Anne of Green Gables

Anne always had a way of saying the most charming thoughts. There is a dollop of satisfaction in the pearl slipping from the string. Keeping life simple and happy is my quest, and Keepig the child alive in us!
