‘Having children makes you no more a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist’

One of my favorite quotes is “Having children makes you no more a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist.” ~ Michael Levine Many people today feel having children automatically makes them good parents.

April Sims Quote: Don’t Let Fear of the Word No Stop You

Time is valuable, don’t waste it

No matter how old you are or where you live, WE all have one thing in common and that is – – WE are all given an allowance of 24 hours each and every day. The only exception to this rule is if the heavenly Father pulls our card. With this said, be the best you that you can be and don’t strive to be cheap imitation of another. You don’t have enough time to try to be anyone other than yourself.  You can can Continue reading →
