I enjoy so many blogs and picturetrails, for me it is like visiting a friend. Many, many of you have inspired me with your photos of your homes and your words. Tonight I was "visiting" a picturetrail album and learned that Ruth Rochelle of Primitivehomeplace passed away. Those of you who visit her picturetrail or knew her must have known this already, it was shocking for me to read this. This news made me stop and realize how fragile life is and to enjoy everyday with all that we have, our families, friends, homes everyone and everything that becomes a part of who we are. I did not "know" her, but felt as though I did, she seemed to be such a loving person. I believe her home was also in Country Sampler.
