Thank you Laura Bruno Lilly for tagging me in the “3 days, 3 quotes” challenge. First, of course, you must read Laura’s blog and check out her beautiful website. (Hint: we bonded over our mutual love of goats. You will also find recipes, sweet stories, and gorgeous photos there.)
Now, to rise to the challenge, I need to post one favorite quote a day for 3 days, and tag 3 other bloggers. Today’s quote is in honor of my step-grandmother, who led a difficult life, challenged those who loved her, and passed away at age eighty-nine today.
I am relatively certain my step-grandmother never read Terry Pratchett – she wasn’t really given to silliness. But I do think this quote from Pratchett’s book “The Truth” sums up something she’d agree with wholeheartedly:
“Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove.”
And now, to tag the first of three other bloggers for the challenge:
Sonya Rhen – another terrific author and blogger whose work you’ll love.
