Wednesday Inspirations...Learning to Like


I ran across this quote the other day on this wonderful blog and I just wanted to share it with you. What great inspiration!

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 song of birds, the companionship of dogs.
Learn to like gardening, puttering around the house, and fixing things.
Learn to like the sunrise and sunset, the beating of rain on the roof and windows, and the gentle fall of snow on a winter day.
Learn to keep your wants simple and refuse to be controlled by the likes and dislikes of others.

I have always tried to live by these rules and the Lords, and try to teach them to our children and grandchildren. Now if I could only learn to like not spending money so much. LOL LLL
