Thirty Days of Mr. Rogers ... Day Thirteen

Mr. Rogers said, "In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers."

Winnie came to us last year in January.

"The gifts we treasure most over the years are often small and simple.  In easy times and in tough times, what seems to matter most is the way we show those nearest us that we've been listening to their needs  and to their challenges."

She missed out on getting all dressed up in a special Christmas sweater.

"The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self."

I made one for her last week.  The pattern is HERE.

Me:  No commentary today.  Mr. Rogers said it perfectly!

During the month of November, I plan to share wisdom from Mr. Rogers with you each day (from the book "The World According to Mr. Rogers") ... Mr. Rogers's words accompanied by everyday images from life here at Hartwood Manor ... this place that I am blessed to call HOME.


  1. Mr. Rogers does say it perfectly and that sweater for Winnie is also pretty perfect. :)


  2. Loving these quotes... and Winnie is always adorable! Love her holiday sweater!

  3. Thanks for the encouraging quotes and the sweet photos of Winnie.


  4. You have given me a giggle on a Friday evening. Is she grinning or snarling about her sweater? Her little face is so cute :-)

  5. Ditto what he said.
    LOVE the sweater, she looks SO CUTE!


Thanks for stopping by and reading what I share. Comments are welcome and very much appreciated. Spam and trolls are not!
