There is an emanation from the heart

which cannot be described,

but is immediately felt and puts

the stranger at his ease.

~Washington Irving

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough...

.........and more.

It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast,

a house into a home,

a stranger into a friend.

~Melody Beattie

Don't be satisfied with stories,

how things have gone with others.

Unfold your own myth.

May my life be like a great

hospitable tree, and may

weary wanderers find in

me a rest.

~John Henry Jowett

Life is too deep for words,
so don't try to describe it.
~C.S. Lewis

I spent a much needed hour in my summerhouse this afternoon, with a book and a cup of tea.  What a beautiful afternoon and what a blessed little sanctuary, right in the heart of Oxford.
