I'll be taking the next few days off from blogging, while I prepare for and entertain house guests. Old friends from Berlin, who now live in Oklahoma, are coming to visit us.
We had a nice visit with our guests on Thursday and Friday, and then we made a fast trip to Knoxville, TN, to pick up a car we've bought. This was the view across from an interstate rest stop west of Knoxville. It wasn't raining when I took this photo, but we did drive through some heavy rain and fog around Knoxville.
CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.
IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
Thanks for reading.
