Stepping Back in Time
Children took their great grandaunt’s 100 year old copybook to school today! In it, she did her arithmetic and wrote about topics such as honesty, patriotism, the blessedness of toil, war and the seasons. In a piece titled “Gratitude”, she wrote… “Gratitude is a virtue giving us an inward sense and an outward expression of thankfulness for benefits obtained”. What a joy it was to read about Ireland in the early 1900s!
