Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Words to live by

I'm such a mom. I read Family Circle (talking about the magazine, not the comic strip - although I read that one, too. Gotta love "Not me" and "I don't know.")

I love this feature they have called Words to Live By. They pick a topic and find quotes regarding it. For the Oct. 1 issue, it is focused on love and marriage. I picked a couple out that I particularly like.

Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it. - Swedish Proverb

Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without. - James C. Dobson

Marriage is the alliance of two people, one of whom never remembers birthdays and the other who never forgets them. - Ogden Nash (AoD knows which one of us is which -just ask him when my birthday is)

Marriage is not just a spiritual communion, it is also remembering to take out the trash. - Dr. Joyce Brothers

One of the best hearing aids a man can have is an attentive wife. - Groucho Marx (I have the attentive wife thing down, but not so sure that my attentiveness comes from listening.)

I married the first man I ever kissed. When I tell this to my children, they just about throw up. - Barbara Bush

Why does a woman work 10 years to change a man's habits and then complain that he's not the man she married? - Barbra Streisand

I think they did a good job selecting quotes from people across the gamut. How much farther apart could Dr. James Dobson and Barbra Streisand be on political and social issues? Still, I like the quotes - especially the first one. That one is something I really need.
