To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
~William Henry Channing

Fighting Fears

A few years ago Abby fell in the pool and it has made her very skittish around the water...but this year she has worked really hard to overcome that fear...she has practiced at home for when we are at the big pool and will even jump off the side now...before long she'll be going off the diving board! Way to go Abigail!
