To be content with even the best of people, we must be contented with little and bear a great deal.

Isn't this beautiful?

It says that the very few wonderful moments we have with others are worth the very many difficult moments we have with them. As Ten Bears would say, "There is iron in those words."

That is beautiful! Reminds me of my relationship with my husband and children. Ha!

I’ve just started reading ‘Happy Are You Poor, The Simple Life and Spiritual Freedom’ by Thomas Dubay. I can already tell it will have highlighter marks, scribbles in the margins and will have to be read several times for me to glean everything from it that I possibly can. I am addicted to simplicity in every area of my life.
