The Wisdom of Walt…

Walt Whitman that is.

A fellow blogger has had her life turned upside down  in the recent past, but has also triumphed through it and is seeing the blessings of God shower her life.  She shared this on her blog and I thought it was a true piece of wisdom. Probably because it describes my life as well.

“Have you learned the lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you?

Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed passage with you? – Walt Whitman

A type of grass from my neighbor’s yard, might be pampas but not sure.

Ouch! I hate it when I can rethink situations later and see a glimpse of maybe how I appeared instead of how I “thought” I appeared at the time. This quote kind of summs that up for me.

Looking at this grass, it reminds me of the swamp grass that grows in the meadowlands in NJ. It’s not the same, but it is probably in the same family.

Pecan pie takes so little time and is so easy that I didn’t mind making another one. Besides, I didn’t get any, either.

Would you be all in favour of exchanging hyperlinks?
