Thought of the week

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ~ John Lubbock. Hoping your summer is offering you wonderful moments of restful idleness amidst the busyness of our all-too-short summers.

~ Deb Abbey, Health, Wellness & Volunteer Coordinator, Barnesville Area HELPERS
