"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Day of Rest

Considering yesterday's post, I suppose it won't be a surprise to you to read that today I actually followed my great grandparents' advice - on the seventh day, I rested. I slept in a bit, worked on a book I'm writing (thus the late posts to this blog at times), played with my girls, read to my girls, fell asleep on the couch reading to my girls, woke up listening to my GIRLS reading to ME, and basically didn't leave the property again.

The most restful two days I've had in I-don't-know-how long.

I also recently read about and sent for the Seed-A-Need cards. It's a neat idea, kinda like geocaching or GoodReads in that you track your efforts online and read about those who follow, but in this case it's all about doing for others and seeing where that leads. Maybe it's just what I need to see how my efforts may (or may not) be making a difference.
