Encouragement For The Week

What if we just tried contentment? What if we accepted our homes as they are, linoleum, old cabinets, tiny closets, squeaky doors, hand-me-down sofa, and worked with and learned to love what we have right in front of us? I think our grandparents did this much better than we have ever done. Most of them lived in the same home for their lifetimes, and took such good care of what they had, whether it was the "in" thing or not.


  1. Thank you, I needed that today !

  2. You're so right. A few years ago, Pinterest practically ruined my attitude. I quit. Our house is our lovely little home, we take good care of it, and it takes care of us.

  3. This is such great advice! I have often heard the phrase "comparison is the thief of joy." I couldn't agree more!!
