Audrey Hepburn


Thought.....this was written by Audrey Hepburn
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.  For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.  For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.  For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.  For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.  People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.  Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.  As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.

Family Home

The Family Home

Daisy


Daisy is our family mascot and we loved her. She had a good life and loved us.  Cassie got her for a 4H project when she was 8 years old, she is now 24.  Daisy got sick and had to be put down this summer, and this is the last picture I took of her. She is buried here on the farm, in the pasture, under a tree.
