Just Sayin’   |   April 09, 2016

It’s the littlest things that make the biggest difference. Little habits, little acts of kindness, little decisions, little sacrifices all add up to a big difference. I want my children to have good memories and know how to cherish the moments and preserve a life timeĀ of good memories and rich moments. My parents worked very hard and sacrificed everything for my up bringing and I don’t remember them ever speaking a word of complaint about not having something they could have had or about the demands of raising eight children. I hope I can pass those qualities on to my children by example as well. I was thinking back this week on the little words of wisdom that were often quoted to me growing up. I’ll try to remember a few of those old New England proverbs to share.

    Thank you for sharing your pictures. I enjoyed every one of them, even the cows. I also enjoy the prayer letters and pictures from Becca and her husband.
