Happy Thursday

I’m not sure why this quote became the posting of choice after the tragic Boston Marathon bombings. I’m not even 100% sure that Fred Rogers actually said this, but I love it nonetheless. In times of tragedy that cannot be explained, it is nice to find comfort where you can, and if there is at all a silver lining to the bombings, it is witnessing that the number helpers on the scene far outweighed the evildoers.

These flowers:

Are outside my window. As much as I love them, I’m more excited to see the green leaves poking through the buds. It means that the lush, green summer is coming, and winter is far behind.

If you haven’t listened to the episode of This American Life called, “Trends with Benefits,” you should. In fact, you NEED to listen to this. I thought their investigation of why the amount of people on disability insurance is rapidly rising would basically boil down to people cheating the system, but I was wrong. Instead, this story changed the way I view our country’s entire economy. This is worth an hour of your life. Promise.

This book:

I couldn’t put it down. If you’re looking for a captivating story to suck you in, get this one.

This commercial:

It either made me teary eyed or I’m lying.

Thanks for reading. xoxo

    I work for a PBS station & I can tell you he did say this! PBS used it a lot after the tragedy in Newtown. Fred Rogers was pretty amazing :-)

    I love this quote by Fred Rogers…..I have it hanging up by my desk at work so I can look at it when I need to ( first hung it up after Sandy Hook, and unfortunately there have been occasions following this). Love your blog.
