A Note From A Reader

A very sweet and encouraging note from one of my longtime readers:

Dear Mary and all,
your simply livin' blog has been such an inspiration.  I love reading about the truly different and blessed life you lead.  I was so amazed at the abundance of produce that you harvest and the savings you have, as organic foods are SOOO expensive here.  I spent $27 at the farmers market for a few onions, mixed greens, 6 apples, 3 beets, kale, sunflower sprouts, 1 cucumber and a small squash.  You have a gold mine there!  Plus a tiny plastic container of raspberries is almost $4.  You don't even know how incredible your talents are, they will sustain you for a lifetime.  I would've loved to have given those gifts to my children but would not have known where to start.  What's so interesting too is that you don't seem to take it for granted, your blogs are full of the excitement and appreciation of things that you're so blessed to be a part of every day and yet they seem new and awesome to you.  It's such a refreshing contrast to the kids I see every day at school.  Everything comes at them so fast, they would never have the time or patience or sadly, interest to photograph a hummingbird by a flower that they grew.  I wish we could give the world what you've been given.  Thank God and your parents, who's love and commitment are for real and never ending.
God Bless you,
A. Kathy
