  • My daughter's longest sentence has been "happy baby" so far, so no, she has not said anything profound yet :p

    But there are many MANY quotes that I look back on often. Sometimes it's just one word taken in context of a book that makes the difference. I would have to find my quotebook to give you specifics, but it's incredible what the written word does to me. I think we all have things like that.

  • book? Thy Holy Bible. and I almost always referto Psalms 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God" It always calms me to remind myself that God is in control and I have to just trust in Him. :)

    As for the second question.....I'm not sure....Yes they have but I just can't think of any at the moment. :)

  • Quotes that I look back on- "this too shall pass" and "everything has a time and a season"

    My four yr old is very wise beyond her years when she tells me "your the best mommy ever!" LOL

  • From the time I was a small child my Grandmothers answer was:

    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    Living one day at a time;
    Enjoying one moment at a time;
    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
    Taking, as He did, this sinful world
    as it is, not as I would have it;
    Trusting that He will make all things right
    if I surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy in this life
    and supremely happy with Him
    Forever in the next.
