QUOTES from the Sandbox, President's Day, 2/18,2020

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi Everyone!  Yesterday was President's Day and in the political climate we
live h
ere in America,  we may be hyped up a little more, wound a little tighter.
As 
some of you know, I am a political junkie.  Often the sound and music in my
background will be zen, meditation, the sacred, western/cowboy stuff, or some
online educational course.  But 1/2 the time, it is current political affairs.
Not too much of a stretch when you note my choice of quotes for today:
Quotes from our American Presidents...  Perfectly gorgeous day here in
Central Orlando, Florida and totally enjoying it.  Hope wherever you are that
you are enjoying and loving your day and that it is going perfectly for you.

troubles, you wouldn't sit for a week.,"                                ~Theodore Roosevelt

I love reading all your comments to the Quotes in the mailbox of the Sandbox.  Not fair, I know, and I wish I could respond to and comment on each and every comment to a 'Sandbox' post.    I promise you, I do take time to think of you and remember your locations and send out a prayer to each of you.  I am working on finding a way, a time to respond to the individual comments.  I am in awe how some of you are so responsible and respond back to others' comments.  I am working on it, I promise.
