November 2013

"On the banks of the James River, a husband erected a tombstone in memory of his wife, one of those 100 maidens who had come to Virginia in 1619 to marry the lonely settlers. The stone bore this legend: 'She touched the soil of Virginia with her little foot and the wilderness became a home.'"
                            --Eudora Ramsey Richardson

The power of a tiny step...
The power of a kind word, of an outreached hand...
The power of a grateful heart, of enduring hope...
The power of love.

Maybe it all starts so small.

Happy Thanksgiving!



  1. This was lovely. Thanks for the share. It's amazing to think of traveling to the unknown to meet and marry a stranger. It sounds from the quote above that that particular relationship worked well. But I like your follow up comments especially.

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth, glad you enjoyed the re-post. I wonder, too, about such a relationship that could endure under those circumstances. What a story of courage!
