    Exquisite photo and wise words, Janet.

  2. Well, now, don’t those words allow a person to stop and ponder the meaning of life. Beautiful photo. Happy Monday, Janet. 🙂

  3. markd60 says:

    Truly great quote! And so true!

  4. I prefer a third way: by being grateful for what i have.
    I do not desire little.
    I want whatever I can have or want,
    But I am always grateful.
    Even when I have to grit my teeth and say, thanks a lot.

    I see you added the missing “s” in the title’s “way”.


    • Fixed the “s” before I got your comment, Randy, but thanks. I noticed it right away this morning.

      Your point is well taken and as a Christian, I would add that I’m always rich in that God loves me and has richly blessed me. The quote’s very apt today in a society where people not only want but expect they should have everything and right away.

    , so very true

  6. Dan Antion says:

    Beautiful photo, Janet and a very nice reminder.

  7. I feel exceptionally wealthy in many ways, and always try to remember to feel grateful about it. However, it would be very difficult to keep that in mind if I didn’t have the money to buy necessities, and unfortunately, the tax man has his hand out every year and he won’t take my artwork for barter, lol. Such a double-edged sword and a fine line to walk! The attitude is so important, and your photos are constant reminders of how much the world shares the wealth of beauty with us. I may not get by to comment often, but having you as a friend makes me feel rich, too!

    • I completely understand, Madison!! Taxes are a difficult subject. We need them, yet almost everyone thinks the government spends too much. On the other hand, many want what the government hands out, which comes from our pockets, making any discussion of where to cut quite difficult. 🙂

      You last sentence made my day so much brighter and I feel the same about you as well. Thanks!


  8. A beautiful way to start our day. The rose is gorgeous.

    • Thanks very much, Allan. I hope the rest of your day is as beautiful. We’re having cold, wind, and, believe it or not, snow, although not as much as many north of us, so I’m grateful for that. Now that I’m done with errands, it’s a perfect day to work around the house and then read a good book. 🙂


  9. JT Twissel says:

    I’m definitely in the acquiring little category.

    • Hmm, I think it’s “desiring little”, JT, but I know what you mean. I try to acquire as little as possible, while struggling to get rid of things I don’t really need or no longer need. That part is tough for me, especially if we’re talking about books. 🙂 But there aren’t a lot of things I really desire, which is quite helpful most of the time.


  10. restlessjo says:

    That’s pretty true, Janet, and that rose is beautiful. 🙂 🙂

  11. Sue says:

    Very wise words

  12. Lignum Draco says:

    Quite a profound quote. A lovely photo to match.

  13. pommepal says:

    That rose looks like porcelain and such a true thought

  14. Su Leslie says:

    This is such a beautiful photo Janet. It marries well with wise words. Desiring little also has the virtue of enabling us to enjoy more that which we do have. Wishing you a very happy weekend.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
