Time to break out the party hats and noise makers! This is post number 400 here on my little blog. It’s been grand fun since I started this adventure in January 2008, and I am so thankful to make new friends and share a bit about my life and travels. I’m offering a little giveaway to my dear readers in appreciation of your friendship.
The giveaway prize is a special book, Roll the Wheel - The Abundant Life and Wisdom of Mae Phillips. I got this literary treasure on our last trip to Berea, Kentucky. It is signed by the author, Phyllis M. EagleTree. Miss Mae lived a difficult life in the Appalachian hills. She was no stranger to hard work and tough times. Despite the hardships and heartaches, Miss Mae rose above her circumstances. She took pride in her garden; cherished her loved ones; and counted her blessings.
Along with poignant sepia-tone images, the book provides short stories told in her own voice about her life and philosophy. One of my favorites quotes is from Walking in the Light: “Every day you live, you’ll appreciate life more. If you can just walk down the road here and back, why it’ll be something big for you to think on. That’s the way I am about it now. Be content. The Bible says, “Be content with what you’ve got, and walk in the light as you see the light.” And when you get into a spot that you think ain’t good, get out of it.”
