“No one is truly poor but…”


“No one is truly poor but except the one who lacks the truth.”
-St. Ephrem the Syrian

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.

  1. First time I’ve heard of this saint. I wonder what made him say that?


    • My first time also. Good question. I don’t know, but when I find out I’ll let you know. Or if you find out before me you can drop me a comment here. Thank you for your comment and question. They have stirred up some ideas for this blog. Maybe I can include a brief fact or two about the quotes’ origins when I post.
