I hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday. Ours culminated in a candy mine field....
just as it should. ;-)
Lastly, we were left with a poignant lesson from George Washington Carver, who unbeknownce to us, had found his way to Winterset, Iowa, before his scientific breakthroughs and fame. He found his way there, dejected and downtrodden, but was lifted up by the fine people of that community and shown the way.
The quote on the monument says the following:
"It is not the style of clothes one wears, neither the kind of automobile one drives, nor the amount of money one has in the bank, that counts. These mean nothing. It is simply service that measures success." --George Washington Carver
Service. It is simply service that measures success. I love that. What a wonderful sentiment...if only everyone believed that, what a wonderful place the world could be. Money does not equate success and success can be had without money.
Have a great week.
