"...small minds discuss people"

Recently, I've been a bit disheartened by comments that I have read while out and about in blog-land.

Enough already.

I think Eleanor Roosevelt sums it up nicely...

"Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."
~Eleanor Roosevelt

My hope is that whenever you visit here, you are left with a sense of

Mother Teresa said it so well...

"Words which do not increase the light of Christ, increase the darkness."

And might I just add...I truly feel blessed to be part of a community of bloggers who place their time and efforts on their faith, family, farms/homes.  

Thank you to all of you for the time you take to share your kind thoughts and words with me,

for sticking with me when life slows me down and I'm not able to blog regularly,

and for writing the type of posts on your own blogs that are often thoughtful, encouraging, and filled with beauty...both ideas and photography.

Yours are the types of blogs that fill me up and renew my spirit.
Thank You!
