I got to thinking how much I love the idea of a little shed or shepherds hut or even a summer seat, somewhere pretty to go and drink tea, or sew or read. I have always preferred the servants quarters of big houses to the grander parts, I love a cottage rather than a mansion. Perhaps it is a question of feeling unworthy, I don't know? I remember when I read the book about Billy Connelly's life I was very struck by the fact that although he now lives in a very big house, he has a very small room to himself and that is what he prefers.
tumblr to inspire you.........
I would like to recite a poem to you that is very personal to me, but one which I think if you havn't heard you may enjoy........
----WISHES--- by A.C.Child
Some may wish for city streets jewels or silken gown;
Some may crave unbounded wealth, fame or beauty's crown;
Some may long for sunny paths that lure the pleasure bent -
But simpler things by far than these would keep my soul content
A bit of God's green country, with blue sky overhead;
A tiny shack, white curtained; on the sill a posy red;
A laughing chubby baby, playing iside on the floor,
And a little flower garden, growing near the open door.
A table set for supper, fresh fruit and honeycomb
Little breezes whispering "your man's a comin' home"
Simple things, with love and faith - far from worldly strife;
God granting these, before I die, I'd ask no more of life.
Thankyou so much to all of you who left me kind wishes, advice and prayers, it is very much appreciated. You are all so kind. I am feeling much better now, being careful what I eat and drink. I wish you all a very enjoyable and happy Easter.
