Quote of the Day

I'm not blogging as much as I'd like! But I do religiously read the blogs I follow :) Kelle Hampton at Enjoying the Small Things made me cry today, but it was a warm fuzzy cry and this is the paragraph that got me, and it got me good. She hit the nail on the head and smashed the ball out of the ballpark. Inspiring words... Kelle is an amazing writer and mom, her daughter Nella happens to have extra good stuff just like Super Ace :)

"I can’t make everything better for Nella, I can’t magically change the way her brain works or fix her muscle tone or promise that she won’t have moments of feeling different from others in life. But I can do my part in making the world a kinder place for her to thrive—for all my kids to thrive. “It’s like this,” I told my friend Annie the other day, “With all the world’s sorrow and problems and heartache and hatred, it can feel so overwhelming sometimes to think that we can do anything to fix it. But if someone came and told me there was one thing I could do that was guaranteed to fix it—no matter how small that fix was and no matter how silly the task assigned was, I’d do it. If someone handed me a wrench and promised me that if I turned that wrench to the right every day, it would help make Nella feel more accepted and capable and valued, I’d turn that damn wrench right, every moment of every day until I died.” 

Bravo Kelle, well said... I ditto that wrench...
