Mother's Day

Susan just read this to us from this month's Vanity Fair. This quote is the perfect way to end my first Mother's Day (those dimples up there were the perfect way to start it).

Who are your heroes in real life?
Let's go with Jesus. Not the gay-hating, war-making political tool of the right, but the outcast, subversive, supreme adept who preferred the freaks and lepers and despised and doomed to the rich and powerful. The man Garry Wills describes, 'with the future in his eyes...paradoxically calming and provoking,' and whom Flannery O'Connor saw as 'the ragged figure who moves from tree to tree in the back of [one's] mind'."--John Cusack

Love the quote - and here all night I've been thinking of how to come to terms with my liberal values and my Christian beliefs. Lookie there! :)

Sweet, sweet Abe! Oh - and Happy Mother's Day!!! (Late I know)

I've always liked John Cusack -- guess it turns out we're kindred spirits. Go figure. LOVE the dimply delight you're kissing. What a joyful pair!
