learn to like what doesn’t cost much
Learn to like what doesn’t cost much.Learn to like reading, conversation, music.Learn to like plain food, plain service, plain cooking.Learn to like fields, trees, brooks, hiking, rowing, climbing hills.Learn to like people,even though some of them may be different…different from you.Learn to like to work and enjoy the satisfaction of doing your job as well as it can be done.Learn to like the songs of birds, the companionship of dogs.Learn to like gardening, puttering aroundthe house and fixing things.Learn to like the sunrise and sunset, the beating of the rainon the roof and windows,and the gentle fall of snow on a winter’s day.Learn to keep your wants simple andrefuse to be controlled by the likes and dislikes of others.Lowell Bennion
I’m letting these words wash over me, settle in my soul, today, this rainy-play inside-stay in pajamas ’cause we’re not feeling all well-day. It seems to echo a theme for me, of the lessons and truths that we’re embracing as a family. Frugal Girl illustrates this beautifully with some gorgeous photos.
