This Fine Talent

"Louisa May Alcott once wrote that "there is one very excellent, necessary, . . . accomplishment that no (one) should be without, for it is a help to rich and poor, and the comfort of families depends upon it. This fine talent (home keeping) is neglected nowadays and considered old-fashioned, which is a sad mistake. . . It is the most beautiful as well as useful of all arts . . . Not so romantic, perhaps, as singing, painting, writing, or teaching, but one that makes many people happy and comfortable, and home the sweetest place in the world."

Thank you so much for highlighting one of my very favorite quotes. I truly appreciate it. I can tell from your own writing that we are kindred spirits! I especially enjoyed reading your life philosophy. The subtitle of your blog says it do give "evidence of a rich life". Lovely!
Thanks again.
