I ran across some great quotes today...this is mostly for me, because I love a great quote!

Abraham Lincoln:
How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four; calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.

Adrienne Rich:
When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.

I had to think on this one a minute...but it's true. When we don't put up a front, other people are released to be real, too.

Benjamin Disraeli:
Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.

Henry Ward Beecher:
It is one of the severest tests of friendship to tell your friend his faults. So to love a man that you cannot bear to see a stain upon him, and to speak painful truth through loving words, that is friendship.

very true, but how many of us would accept such friendship?

Virginia Woolf:
If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.



Something I learned: Tonight I learned not to assume that Corban knows not to reach into the potty to touch what Riley has just deposited into said potty. He is not to be left unattended in the bathroom for a while.

Something I loved: Listening to Corban sing "O Taste and See" by Brian and Jenn Johnson in the back seat of the car. "Oh taste, and see, that the Lord is good..." so SWEET!

Something that made me proud: Caeley searching scripture (unprompted by us) to find an answer to her questions...and reading along with her friends on the phone.
