Some Stuff About Me:

I'm a Minnesota Girl, living in the south. I tell my friends I try not to talk and think like a Yankee, but sometimes I slip up!

Quote for the Day

I follow a blogger that really lets her brain flow to paper. I was particularly struck by what she wrote yesterday, regarding people wringing their hands about the state of the nation....

Maybe it is just me, but no government on the face of this planet lives up to the idealistic notions that it was founded on. All of them fall short of those ideals. And if one looks at our shortcomings (and nothing but our shortcomings) for any extended amount of time, I suppose that it is easy to find yourself feeling hopeless, as if there is no way to fix things. I think that we'd all be better off if we quit worrying about these sorts of things and began to focus on this one thing: "What can we do, today, to make our world a little bit better?" Perhaps it is a kind word, or a good deed, or a gift of our money, or our time. It seems to me if everyone focused more on making the country better instead of screaming about its faults, about the faults of their fellow Americans, we'd finally begin to see some changes.

Thanks, Debby from...."Life's Funny Like That".
