Tuesday Goodness

Emily and I had the whole day to do whatever we wanted. So, we went to Camas Antiques. I'm sure glad we made the trip after dropping off our dry cleaning. I not only found a great table, but also a matching chair. The table is a perfect little home for our new record player that we received from my ma for Christmas. I will post the final view in our home later this week. In the meantime, here are our new accessories courtesy of the designer. Be sure to check out Amanda's blog and space at Camas Antiques.


I bet you didn't know...

Talking with a group of teenagers can break your heart and mend your soul all at the same time. I am truly humbled.

Check it.

A Lovely Poem

>> Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Found by a wonderful student, Kelsea! 


And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, 'Speak to us of Children.'

And he said:

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;

For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

-Khalil Gibran
