A Wonderful Quote: Treasure

  1. Oh-oh, Darla, this is so special. My grandfather read this to all of his grandchildren. It was when he’d moved into town and was digging a big garden in the back of our house. Nine of the 13 grandchildren helped dig the soil, remove rocks, pull out weeds (the other 4 children lived in Indiana, but they did visit during the summer, and that’s when he read us the story.
    Thank you for this wonderful reminder!!!


    • Well, that makes it a REALLY wonderful quote. And I found this story in “The Book of Virtues,” which I mentioned to you earlier. You just made Aesop’s fable come alive for me as I imagine all of you working that garden and your grandfather having this fable in mind as he watched.
