Saturday Reflection

Via We Heart It

"Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away". Elbert Hubbard.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway - 2 posts down!

Happy Saturday :)


  1. Hi A-M, so glad you have found this book. I went thru a difficult time about 5 years ago and came across this book at that time. It is amazing to see yourself so well described and realise you've trapped yourself all these years. I'm sorry i gave my copy away but i think the lessons stay with you.

  2. Good morning...

    Hope you all have a great week-end. Enjoy with the boys' and I love seeing you happy again.

  3. So true. I volunteer at a nursing home and when the residents thank me for being there it embarrasses me because I get so much more from them than I give. The love we give is the love that fills us to the brink.

  4. Dear AM, Very true. But funny how the simplest things people often find the hardest to do and take the longest time to learn. The next cameo is yours for sure...(good things come to those who wait I have heard,ha) hope you have a lovely day,xx Katherine

  5. That is very true, I guess it's another way of saying "It's better to give, than receive".
    Thanks for your thought!

  6. Best wishes for a soothing weekend. Thanks for all the goodness you share. You make me want to be a better version of myself.

  7. So very true. Like that cliche about loving something enough to give it away - if it comes back to you it's yours - if it doesn't it was never meant to be. The real way to receive in life is to keep giving away. You get it A-M. Have a fantastic weekend!

    XO, Andrea

  8. Hi A-M,
    I just wanted to say thank you. 18 months ago I married a farmer and moved from the Gold Coast to a small country town in South Australia. For months I felt blessed but lost, not sure how to be myself in a very different landscape. When I discovered your blog, I was inspired to begin to build a beautiful home and life. I have a long way to go, but I take delight in the journey every day. Warmest thanks.

  9. Ah, I think I may just have to buy that book, A-M - you seem to have found your equilibrium since reading it. J x

  10. Ok So what should we giveaway, dodgy friends and husbands???
    tee hee.
    I'm ready to give away here, a very pesky physiotherapist.

  11. Very true hope you are having a great weekend A M :)


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you. A-M xx
