While I was reading your responses to my little survey, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it through with dry eyes. What struck me most was:
You get it.
Judging from the outpouring of responses, you and I are not alone in loving, among other things:
- simple living
- old-fashioned standards
- making instead of buying
- family over everything else
- responsible kids, home cooking, uncluttered spaces, and much more
We live in a complex, fast-paced world. But as you and I know, it is possible to find clarity and peace. It is possible to create a beautiful life without spending gobs of money. It is possible to tune out the noise and focus on what’s really important.
So thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, for joining the discussion, for listening and wondering. I am working on some enriching additions to Frugal Mama, and through the stillness of this summer, I have been thinking about my personal path through life.
For now I just wanted to say that I am so happy that you are with me on this journey.
