Hi there! Thanks for stopping by to visit me at mamas*little*treasures - I love the quote you posted today. It is so good to be reminded of that, because we so often worry way too much about what others think of us . . . . and then that affects the way we think about ourselves. Thanks for sharing!

That is a beautiful quote! As it happens, I just read it along with a friend in our little book group. It is from Henri Nouwen's book, "Discernment: Reading the Signs of Daily Life," on p.26. It's a wonderful, compassionate book, as I know you can imagine, since you have shown me others of his books! I'm currently reading his "With Open Hands," which you recommended. With gratitude, lucy
