Words for Wednesday

I'm a big Shel Silverstein lover. I had a couple of his books growing up that I adored. Where the Sidewalk Ends is great for kids, short little funny stories/poems. And don't even get me started on The Giving Tree. I never owned that one as a child, but certainly read it and now have my own copy. It can pretty much bring me to tears anytime I read it. 

Really like this quote -- for children and "big children", everyone needs a little inspiration sometimes. I think a print of this quote would be perfect hanging in a child's room. I'm going to store this idea away for later, much, much later :)
