QUOTES THAT MAKE YOU THINK

Hi Patty,

Good quotes. I like this one: If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.- Meister Eckhart

Of course, G.B. Shaw's quote is good, too. LOL. Well, they're all good.

One of the things I am thankful for, (among many others) is that no one at my house is a big football fan!

Have a good night.
