  1. Profound wisdom from children. Much to ponder here, Mitch! I especially like this post. Too bad WordPress doesn’t offer a “love” button. 🙂

    O.k. Ashlyn’s quote made me tear up a little… and I work in a prison so. Luckily today is at the women’s prison.

    I’m partial to Ashlyn’s quote as well. Reminds me of the classic children’s book, “Love You Forever,” by Robert Munsch. Sure to bring the reader to tears. Here’s another quote for your collection, Mitch, free of charge: “Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” — Eleanor Roosevelt. (I like that one, too!)

    Yes, I love this. Constantly trying to be a better version of myself every day, changing, evolving.
