Quote of the Day...


I'm cleaning off my desk at work, because soon I'll be working from home, and I have to figure out what to keep here, and what to take with me. I came across this quote that I found somewhere once...maybe Center for a New American Dream? I'm not sure. Anyway, I'm thinking you'll like it. I do.
"Money can never buy you love or happiness. You cannot go into a store and pay a person to be your friend. I mean, you could, but I would rather meet them under a big apple tree."
- Rebekah McConnell, 11 years, Meridian, ID.
I love the optimism of it, yet the knowledge in there that yes, you can buy friends. And no, they wouldn't be the best ones to have around.

I love this. Truly. The wisdom of children is truly astounding and when we just shut up and listen, they almost always have something worth listening to.
