Quote for the day... - 02/26/09 08:00 AM
Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd have preferred to talk. Doug Larson
I am only beginning to realize the impact of this quote....if I could have understood how important this statement is when I was younger. Listen more and talk less. Now, if I could only make my 13 and 14 year old children grasp this concept. Have a great weekend. (12 comments)
Need some AR help.....swapping and trading??? What? - 02/25/09 02:24 PM
Active Rain has been almost a daily ritual of mine. I have found so much information just from reading members' posts and comments. I am once again looking for some insight.

Now, I have heard of this (5 comments)
True friends...quote of the day. - 02/23/09 09:26 AM

How dull life would be with no one to share our "moments." Take a moment to share with your friends how special they are to you..whether by letter, phone call, e-mail or text. They will appreciate that you not only thought of them but took the time to let them know.

Have you hatched?? - 02/02/09 09:55 AM
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. C.S. Lewis
Clive Staples Lewis was born Novemeber 29, 1898 and died Novemeber 22, 1963. He was a novelist, scholar and a broadcaster. One of his most notable works is the series of books that comprise 'The Chronicles of Narnia'. I just love this quote and (7 comments)
