  1. Betsy, what a beautiful quote. And so true in so many ways. It makes me think of several people in my life...who have lived this quote...You, included.

    Loving you today ~

  11. Great quote, but the things you do are far from common. You do very special things in a very special way and because of it you command the attention - and the respect - of all your many friends. Happy Spring Betsy.

  22. I can't believe we are that far behind you. I don't believe my daffodils will bloom until well into April. The good thing is, the snow is melting... again.

  23. Martha ~ I know...you don't seem that much further north! It's snowing as I type this, though...tiny little flakes. We always get a warm week...the daffodils bloom...and then we are back to reality. ha.

  24. Lucky you...beautiful daffy's! Mine aren't anywhere near this photo. They always remind me of a choir singing out with mouths shaped like o's.

  25. A singing choir...oh, that's so cute! I'll think of that every time I look at them now! :)

  28. Betsy love...love...love... the daffodils, mine are only poking there heads up an inch or so above the ground. A great quote, I will share it with my oldest daughter. She has chosen to take an uncommon path out of college. You are very special, thanks for your insight.
