One of the advantages that I appreciate in striving for an (almost) daily blog is the fact that I have a visual memory bank of ideas and recipes that might slide into oblivion without the structure that houses them.
Case in point: I came across a quote today that I had read before and let slip away. Including it here will allow me to acknowledge how it resounded with me. How it made me think about how our reactions to things shape our children, both for good and ill.
This is a quote from Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers):
When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.
