“I have found such joy in simple things: a plain, clean room, a nut-brown loaf of bread, a cup of milk, a kettle as it sings, the shelter of a roof above my head, and in a leaf-faced square upon a floor, where yellow sunlight glimmers through a door.”
- Grace Noll Crowell
NOTE: I came across this poem tucked in one of my mother’s college textbooks, carefully written out with a fountain pen, in her best handwriting. Come and visit us this summer, and stay in one of our suites, lovingly styled and named after our parents!
” . . . the last hurrah of winter and the first whisper of spring. Slowly our spirits reawaken, along with the natural world, from a long winter’s slumber. Branches that just days ago were bare, now blossom with new growth . . . ”
from Simple Abundance, A Daybook of Comfort and Joy
