30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 18

Day 18: Quote

This one is hard. There are a lot of really great quotes out there. However, my life is run by children. So, my current favorite quotes are mostly from nursery rhymes and children’s songs. Some of those songs are really kind of sad. So, the quote I am thankful for comes from “Row Row Your Boat”: “Life is but a dream.” I had a revelation when I first heard someone say only that line. I believe it was in a song by Bauhaus. The singer just says that line at the end of the song. It really made that children’s song sound just hopeless. And here we go rowing as much as we can.

And I still sing this song *all the time* to my kiddos. It might be hopeless, but it is great for lulling them to sleep.

Day 17: Store

Egads. I do love to wander in a few different stores. I think the one I would be most thankful for was the old Dream Street in St. Augustine, FL. I found so much peace in that place. I was sad when it changed. It is still nice, but in a different way. Dream Street was the place I needed as an angst-ridden teenager.
