“Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day—like writing a poem or saying a prayer.” -Anne Morrow Lindbergh

  1. Thanks for sharing my post, Tsh!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing my post! Seems like it’s resonating with a lot of “small home” folks 🙂

  3. I almost always find the links here at Simple Mom to be wonderful–this week I cheered loudly for the Blessings of a Small Home post! But I have to say that I found the Shaun Groves link about why women give more than men to be a rare exception. The implication that evangelical men are so brow-beaten by overbearing wives that they can’t commit to $38/month is pretty appalling to me. These same guys wouldn’t blink at spending $38 for something related to football, golf, hunting, or whatever hobby they’re involved in. It blows my mind how determined some people are to find a way to blame women for every problem that comes along.
