THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Mother’s Dozen:  An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!”

Kimberly Robinson of Pasadena, California, says, “Mother’s Dozen is a short, fun-loving inspirational guide for parenting.  Filled with GREAT advice and reason for those who have questions and feel there is no help or no one to show them “how to do it.”  Mother’s Dozen offers insight with personal experiences from a very established, well-round individual, a truly genuine author.

I am a believer that anyone who wants to raise respectable, intelligent, outgoing, independent children would find it in this book.  There is something for everyone to learn from, especially the parents.

Being born of the late 70’s era, I can relate to most of the upbringing mentioned.  We didn’t have a lot, but we always had enough, and always had a good time.

I would encourage everyone to get your copy and start yours and your child’s future on a brighter path to a long, enjoyable life.”

Keep Swimming!
~  Author Unknown

Two frogs fell into a deep cream bowl.

One was an optimistic soul.
But the other took the gloomy view.
“We’ll drown,” he lamented without much ado.
And with a last, despairing cry,
he flung up his legs and said, “Goodbye.”

Quote the other frog with a steadfast grin,
“I can’t get out, but I won’t give in.
I’ll just swim around till my strength is spent,
then I’ll die, all the more content.”

Bravely he swam to work his scheme,
and his struggles began to churn the cream.

The more he swam, his legs a flutter,
the more the cream turned into butter.

On top of the butter at last he stopped,
and out of the bowl he gaily hopped.

What is the moral?  It’s easily found. . .
If you can’t hop out, keep swimming around!
