Hi, Angie. When I saw your comment on this post I thought for sure you were going to say that the link wasn't working right. (I fixed it and now it should work OK.)

Genevieve, I love you barn header on your blog! -- barbara

Thanks, Barbara. It's a scanned photograph of a barn near our home. At the time of the photo, that farm belonged to an elderly lady who had her entire acreage in CRP (a farm program that gave her a payment for letting the land lie idle). It's not too far from our house. The buzzards roosted there on summer nights and we could hear them "cooing" sometimes. Now the farm is owned by a Mennonite family, and they use the old barn to store their farm equipment. There's enough activity in the area that the buzzards don't roost there anymore.

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)
