O ~ Only

A few of the only-s in my life:

I grew up as the only girl in a family of six children. Most of the time I really didn't mind, though I would have loved to have a sister.
A quote my mother wrote in my autograph book, that means a lot more to me today than it did on the day she wrote it:

Only one life, 'twill soon be past.
Only what's done for Christ will last.

I could probably write a book on how to live frugally, and living with only the very basic necessities in life.
I only get around 5-6 hours of sleep per night, and that only because it's necessary. Life feels too short to spend over a third of it in bed.

I really like this quote by Martin Luther King Jr.

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.


  1. I love the quote your Mother wrote. It is SO true.
    Happy Monday!

  2. Maybe you could write a post or two about what frugal living means to you. I know lots of people write about it, but it can mean very different things to different people. We are making some very tough decisions financially right now and our ideas about frugality are being tested mightily.

  3. Oh please write that book. I need help in that area. :)

  4. Love that MLK quote. So true.

    I have a sister. We fought a lot. :) Maybe you were okay with brothers!

  5. Another vote for writing the book (or blog posts for that matter). It's an area many people have a few things to learn.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
