Read This Book

"'Sometimes,' my five-year-old son said into my shoulder that night, 'life is so beautiful, you just have to cry'."

--from I'm Proud of You: My Friendship with Fred Rogers by Tim Madigan. This book made me sob and want to be a better human being.

I just saw this at the library the other day, but hadn't heard any reviews. I think I might need to check it out.

Got my calendar-thank you!

Lori, I wish we lived closer...or at least that you had a several week stay in New York City every weekend.

Will look up this book. I never heard of it, but Fred Rogers is one of my all time favorite human beings.

I'm ordering it from the library today. Thanks.

I'll pick it up from Christine when she's done, thanks! :)

Oh I can't wait! I am putting this on hold now. This is my first time commenting on your blog but I've followed you off and on since we started our adoption. Also I feel like I know you because our town is so small and I'm friends with Lisa/Davy/Andy and great friends with a mom of one of Abe's schoolmates.

Anyway...I've nominated you for a Liebster Award...I hope you don't mind
