Quote du jour/Fred Rogers


Parents are like shuttles on a loom. They join the threads of the past with the threads of the future and leave their own bright patterns as they go, providing continuity to succeeding ages.

  2. I feel the same way. I learned so much from watching the show and listening to his tapes, right along with my children. My husband and I both think he was one of the great people, a wonderful teacher, a real spiritual leader.

  3. I agree with both of you, Grace and Nan. He was a wonderful human being, one of the great people, a favorite in our home, and we miss him terribly, too.

  4. Thank you for quoting Fred Rogers. I thought he had one of the most beautiful, sensitive, and kind souls that God had ever blessed a man with.

    He is like comfort food for my spirit!

  5. I've not come across Fred Rogers before, but from what you're all saying about him he must have been very special. Where can I find out more about him?

  7. One of my favorite quotes from Mr. Rogers is from a song, "you can never go down the drain." It was originally meant to calm children's fears of going down the drain with the water in the tub. I try to remember him singing this whenever I'm fearful.

  8. That's wonderful, Catherine Mary. He was so good at calming and soothing and encouraging. He had so many words of wisdom to guide us all along the path of life. You'll probably see more as the qdj. :<)
