A Little Order


We make a little order where we are, and the big sweep of history on which we can have no effect doesn't overwhelm us. We do it with colors, with a garden, with the furnishings of a room, or with sound and words. We make a little form and we gain composure.

Robert Frost

(This little quote is sitting in the corner of my Mom's bulletin board in her kitchen and I've been walking by and reading it for about twenty or so years. I finally took the time to write it down so I could remember it.)

most things in life come back to order....have you ever noticed that? It's in nature...it's everywhere...and mom's do know best. It's always rewarding in some sense to notice the little things tucked away in the corner of a room...there's always a message there somewhere! Thanks for sharing what caught your eye...it's something we can all relate to...

hugs to you my friend ~
