Quotable Friday

TLC's Trent and Tyler watching people in the pool early in the morning.

" I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day;
I’d rather one should walk with me than merely show the way.
The eye’s a better pupil and more willing than the ear;
Fine counsel is confusing, but example’s always clear.
And the best of all preachers are the men who live their creeds.
For to see the good in action is what everybody needs.
I can soon learn how to do it if you’ll let me see it done;
I can watch your hands in actions, but your tongue too fast may run.
And the lectures you deliver may be very wise and true,
But I’d rather get my lesson by observing what you do.
For I may misunderstand you and the high advice you give,
But there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live."  (Edgar A. Guest)

Good Advice

My first-born grandson, Tristan knows his Mémère so well.  He knew it would bring a smile to my face first thing this morning to wake up to a text from him quoting Eeyore.

The quote you ask?  Well, it is very good advice indeed.  Tristan quoted Eeyore from the Winnie The Pooh Movie:
"A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference!"

Thanks Tristan for making my day with Eeyore and especially making me smile knowing that you do know your Mémère well.

My advice to Tristan, myself and anyone reading today: 
"let's take Eeyore's advice to heart".
