New ideas and thoughts are always popping in my head, it’s like a three (more like five) ring circus. Of course, I’m haven’t sprouted any other arms so I can only handle a few at a time.
Anyhow, I thought of starting something new here at LHITC (many others hatching I can assure you!) Figured it would be nice to end the week with an “End Quote” featuring a favorite quote, poem, saying, story or something I found interesting or inspirational. Of course , this musing MUST be accompanied by a favorite photo of the week!
And this week, a stunning picture of the moon which Jordanne captured one morning just above the hen house and a quote about “Perseverance” (remember, that was my ONE WORD for 2012):
“One of the biggest challenges in this or any age is to stick with the necessary changes we need to make and hold fast to the end. As important as beginnings are, the real test is in reaching the finish line, which requires perseverance for the long haul. Because we tend to turn things over to others—experts—we lose the opportunity to develop true self-sufficiency. Through growing our food, along with other homesteading practices, we gain invaluable experience and the true rewards of doing-it-yourself. Going forward, we have to be willing to get past the idea stage and individually sweat the details, adjusting to unforeseen difficulties, and, above all, never quitting.” – Jules Dervaes
Have a restful weekend, everyone.
