Ugh Writer's Block

It seems like we've been busy these last few days but haven't done anything worth blogging about.   So I got onto one of those websites that gives you prompt questions to answer on your blog.   My prompt question went like this
"What's your favorite quote and why?"

My favorite quote is   "As novices, we think we're entirely responsible for the way people treat us. I have long since learned that we are responsible only for the way we treat people. "

Rose Wilder Lane
I'm not sure why that's my favorite quote right now and it will probably be replaced by a new favorite quote sometime in the near future as I'm always changing my mind about those sorts of things.   I like it, I suppose, because it illustrates personal responsibilty, humility, balance, and puts into perspective what we can and cannot control.   We can't control what other people think about us or how other people treat us, we can only control what we think about ourselves and how we treat other people.   Simple, timeless wisdom.
Well, that's it.   I've got nothing else for today.   Not the most exciting post ever.   Here's a funny little picture to make up for it.
