~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"The one law that does not change is that everything changes, and the hardships I was bearing today was only a breath away from the pleasures I would have tomorrow, and those pleasures would be all the richer because of the memories of this I was enduring." - Louis L'Amour

I was cleaning out the pockets of my six-year-old's winter coat, when I found a pair of mittens in each pocket. Thinking that one pair must not be enough to keep her hands warm, I asked her why she was carrying two pairs of mittens in her coat. She replied, "I've been doing that for a long time, Mom. You see, some kids come to school without mittens and if I carry another pair, I can share with them and then their hands won't get cold."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

For your next fruit salad: To keep sliced apples from turning brown, squeeze some fresh lemon juice on them. This will keep them looking freshly sliced (and more appetizing!) much longer.
