A friend saw this 1933 photo of our house on a Facebook page that she follows. She instantly recognized it as our house, and she tagged me on the post. I have never seen it before. (our house was 75 years old at the time)
"You bring all you ever were and are to any relationship you have today."
Here is what the same view of our house looks like now.
Me: There is no greater gift to give than to let others see our true selves. I have little patience for people who try to be something that they aren't. Makes me wonder what else this type of person is faking. Those who know me well know that I am fairly transparent ... what you see is pretty much what you get. I have always been mostly this way, but I have tried to refine and distill away the extraneous parts of myself that didn't contribute to a happy inner self, putting both the positive and negative into perspective, and I'm pretty happy with the person that I am turning out to be.
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.
