Life is not a having and a getting, but a being and a becoming.
Matthew Arnold (1822-1888)
I often wonder if people 'with everything' are happier. Are people with millions of dollars happier than me? Are people with beautiful big houses or expensive cars happier than me? I would love to be able to buy houses for my two daughters. That is my big dream. But other than that I am quite content. I don't have a lot of money so I don't think too much about the future and retirement isn't an option, but that is OK. I am happy.
Creating, relationships and knowing God make me happy.
I still have a week before I go back to school. I have decided that perhaps I should explore my back garden with you. I seldom go down there. It was my husband's 'baby'. He left me 6 years ago for somebody else and it used to make me too sad to go down there. But I am slowly recovering and think a daily trip down there would be good for me.

I came across this bag at the Salvation Army Store for $3. It is in very good condition.
It fits in well with my other 'tapestry' luggage. One bag (on the right below) is actually tapestry - made by my mother. The other is another Salvation Army Store find. They are really only for camping (except the real tapestry bag which is used on other occasions.) But I really enjoy having a 'set' I can have partially packed, ready to go.
