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.

Sam's World

Rob and Sam's conversation this morning. It started with Sam asking me to give him change for his money jar.
Rob: Hey, Sam it's almost time for the Baby Bottle Boomerang*.
Sam: How do you play that?
Rob: It's not a game, son. You fill the baby bottles up with change and it's used to help women who are having babies.
Sam: Like Ms. Melynda?
Well she is pregnant.

*Baby bottle boomerang is a fundraiser sponsored by Safe Harbor, a pregnancy resource center, located in Pensacola, FL.

We found our baby bottle from last year when we moved into this house. I've been waiting for bbb to roll around again. We'll bring it back with us, along with an actual baby next time we visit.
