That best portion

That best portion of a good man's life,
his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.

--William Wordsworth


  1. One of my favorite stories came from a woman who was explaining that her husband wasn't at all romantic. He once picked her a bunch of wildflowers when they were out, and said, "Here, hold these."

    On the contrary, I think its one of the sweetest, most romantic stories I've ever heard. This quote and picture reminded me of that story, and for that, thanks.

  2. What a beautiful story: thank you so much for sharing it! Some of my favorite gifts are the simplest ones which reflect the great love with which they were given. After all, it really is the thought that counts.
