"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

backdoor friends are best
Now that we are backdoor friends I thought I'd welcome you through the back door... Now that we're back door friends I can trust you not to judge the mess on my countertop. I'm thankful that you are willing to overlook the cabinetry that is unfinished around the dishwasher, because you are just happy for me that I finally have a dishwasher! You sigh and smile at the pile of pine branches near the steps waiting to be carried down to the basement. You think it's precious that they've been sitting there waiting for over a week. You dear, dear friends... That's why I love you!
