NOTES FROM MY SISTER-IN-LAW'S FRIDGE

I'm vacationing in Tauranga, New Zealand, enjoying Christmas in the summer for a change. I found these hand-written notes on my sister-in-law's refrigerator that I'd like to share with you.

There are two things we should leave our children. The one is roots, the other is wings. - Hodding Carter

Failure is only the opportunity to start again - this time intelligently. - Henry Ford

Childhood is a time of wonder and awe
made all the more magical
by those who stop to explore
together with the child
all nature has in store.
- Cecile de Groot

Merry Christmas!

Yes, it certainly makes for interesting reading, but can be quite the distraction while putting away the milk.

Nice poem by Cecile there. And I have that first quote on my fridge, too, as a magnet.

My internet connectivity was so damned limited in AZ that I didn't realize you'd posted at all until today. Rats!
