The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

For Family Home Evening tonight we baked some Valentine cookies for a friend who has been in a nursing home recovering from surgery.

It was lovely to slow down from our normally frantic pace of life and sit and visit with someone who needed our company. A good lesson learned.
