Words to Live By

mom holding child 2

All children need a laptop.  Not a computer, but a human laptop. Moms, dads, grannies and grandpas, aunts, uncles - someone to hold them, read to them, teach them.  Loved ones who will embrace them and pass on the experience, rituals and knowledge of a hundred generations.  Loved ones who will pass to the next generation their expectations of them, their hopes, and their dreams.

                                                                         --  General Colin Powell

Oh...it's been one of *those* weeks and it's only Tuesday! But I loved this quote because it reminded me that what I am doing is valuable.
