Happy Mother's Day!

"A little boy forgot his lines in a Sunday school presentation. His mother was in the front row to prompt him. She gestured and formed the words silently with her lips, but it did not help. Her son's memory was blank. Finally, she leaned forward and whispered the cue, "I am the light of the world." The child beamed and with great feeling and a loud clear voice said, "My mother is the light of the world." - Bits and Pieces, 1989

Have a wonderful day!


Six Words

Stephanie tagged me almost a week ago for this.

1. Write the title to your own memoir using 6 words.
2. Post it on your blog.
3. Link to the person that tagged you.
4. Tag five more blogs.

This was hard. I may be "quiet" in a lot of conversations, but get me started and it's hard to stop! Only six words is quite a challenge, but I guess this would be me:

Always learning and trying to improve.

Now I tag:


(If you guys have done this already, sorry!)
