From Ernestine....and I like it, it spoke to me. The baby above will be 8 years old on May 3rd. He had brought so much love and contentment to my life.

This is my Symphony
To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather then luxury, and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich;
to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart, to study hard;
to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never;
in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common --
this is my symphony.

What a beautiful, sweet little child. I love to watch babies and children as they sleep. They look so angelic, don't they?
Your Symphony sounds like my kind of living.

I'll bet this baby gets lots and lots of kisses.

Thank you all for the sweet comments on my first grandson. Tabor, if he gets any kisses from me, he has to be tied down. But, he does give a good hug. And, I always say hugs heal....
