Favorite Quote of the Month ~ September


“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting–a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson



I just love Emerson....
Being animal lovers, Lydia and I were so intrigued by this tight knit little family above that we met on vacation. So sweet but so sad it breaks my heart. Although the man was homeless, he told us he didn't want our money and Lydia asked if we could take a picture. After talking with him awhile I got the impression that he had lost faith in people and only trusted his animals. Lydia and I still talk about it to this day. Hopefully those animals will help him trust again by the people he meets.
