  1. those are lovely words. guilty of some and not of others. ;)

  2. It's pretty simple isn't it.

  3. some days i rue the fact that we don't own our own home - and we can't really even buy our own home. but then i look at this list, and i see that we do so much of it and i think, 'yep, life's good'. we could probably save the money we donate each month to various charities, but i like the fact that i am giving to someone who has less than me....
    thanks for a lovely post, and for reminding me of the important things in life.

  4. i love this. and the link. thanks, and hello :-)
