Quote du jour/Sir John Templeton


How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative—or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people.

I am changing how I post your much appreciated comments. Since I began the blog, I've waited to post them until I had the opportunity to respond. Sometimes that has taken a while, so I've decided to moderate them and post them as soon as possible, and then I'll respond when I get a chance. Please do come back because I will answer all your notes to me.
Also, you may comment on any posts, no matter how old, and I will receive notice.
