  1. :-D Great way to start the day

  2. visit and be visited once a year... I could live with that :)

  3. lol I'm on board with the jolly fat guy

  4. I love the George Carlin one, but I'd extend that to cover ANY speech!

  5. I love all of these but the first one by Lillian Carter is standing out among the rest. I actually had a dream last night I was pregnant with a baby boy. It was a lovely dream and felt very real=)
    But I read an article yesterday about a woman who was going through some really serious and unthinkable thoughts about her two young kids. Like going as far as to say she imagined a tree branch falling on one of them so she wouldn't have to deal with the little one any longer. I was quite bothered and blown away but then again, I haven't walked in her shoes and have no idea what postpartum depression is like.
    Anywho, that quote is just sticking out to me as well as my dream and previous article!

  6. Maybe there's a story to write from your dream, Gina.
    Postpartum depression can be deadly.

  7. Hey Dez, grin. Yeah, that's a good one. I think my favorite is Eleanor Roosevelt:)

  8. Hey Steph, That was a funny one. grin.
