Thirty Days of Mr. Rogers ... Day Three

Mr. Rogers says, " As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has -- or ever will have -- something inside that is unique to all time.  It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression."

Happy Alice, napping while sprawled across my lap one morning.


"The world needs a sense of worth, and it will achieve it only by its people feeling that they are worthwhile."

Dorothy sat on the windowsill for what seemed like an eternity, staring at a moth that had landed on the window screen.


************
As an exercise for 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. I love your idea of sharing the wisdom of Mr. Rogers. He was a remarkable man.

    Cute kitty so intent on the moth, it is the simple things!

  2. To me, Mr. Rogers was ALL about the simple things ... being a good neighbor, sharing yourself with others, treating others with kindness ... and he had such a way of making children feel SO special. His lessons also have a very grown-up message that I thought would be perfect for me to reflect on during this month of thanksgiving.

  6. My kids loved his show years ago. He did teach very valuable lessons. I love the name 'Alice' for a cat. Very cute.
