regardless of their political stripes,
rallied round their president.
the man who won the White House
was no longer viewed as
a republican or democrat,
President of the United States.”

Happy Birthday Lily
“Tolerance is such an important life lesson
that the chickens have shared with our family.
Not everyone is going to like you,
nor are you going to like them.
it is important to always be
courteous, respectful, and kind.
You don’t have to be friends.
You don’t have to hang out.
But you should always lead by example.
It’s a great big world out there
and the flock of humanity is grandiose in size.”
~ Melissa Caughey more
“The question for the child is not
Do I want to be good?
but Whom do I want to be like?”

“Don’t flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you
to say disagreeable things to your intimates.
The nearer you come into relation with a person,
the more necessary do tact and courtesy become.”
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
Happy 205th Birthday
“Things which matter most

“In taking revenge,
a man is but even with his enemy;
but in passing it over,
he is superior.”
