Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t’aime davantage,

From My Friend, Katrina, of UT - 03/25/15:

“Patience is not passive resignation, nor is it failing to act because of our fears. Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something … even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!”

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)

   Thanks so much, Katrina!

 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 03/24/17 - "A Bit of History":

BONUS CROCHET PATTERNS (Sorry; not theme-related):

Susan Pinner's Magical Flower Motif - "You have to see this pattern to believe it! The best part about the Magical Flower Motif is that it can be paired with the Mini Gemstone Octagons to create a gorgeous afghan that fits together like a puzzle. This flower crochet pattern starts as an octagon and then the flower petals are added to the octagon pattern. Make a wonderful flowery and geometric pattern with this amazing pattern."

Brittany McKelvie's Enchanted Orchid Cowl - "The pretty pastel color of this Enchanted Orchid Cowl makes it a great pattern to make for spring. This free crochet scarf pattern is quick and easy to make, so get started right now and you'll be done before you know it. Treat yourself to this trendy fashion item, or make one for a friend. It's a great item to add to anyone's wardrobe because it can be worn year-round as a stylish accessory."

Pamela Grennes' Magical Pillowghan - "At first glance, this Magical Pillowghan doesn't look like anything more than a crocheted pillow. But if you take a closer look, you'll discover the magic behind this free crochet pattern: the blanket is actually folded up and turned into a pillow when not in use. Pretty neat, huh? This is a great gift idea for new homeowners or new neighbors, but be sure to make one for yourself too so you can enjoy the allure of this Magical Pillowghan.:

Kary Osmond's Pesto faster than you can say presto


From - 03/24/17:

A friend hosted a dinner party for people from work and everyone was encouraged to bring their children. All during the sit-down dinner one co-worker's three-year-old girl stared at the man sitting across from her. The girl could hardly eat her food from staring.

The man checked his tie, felt his face for food, patted his hair in place, but nothing stopped her from staring at him. He tried his best to just ignore her but finally it was too much for him. He asked her, "Excuse me, little girl, but why do you keep staring at me?"

Everyone at the table had noticed her behavior, and the table went quiet for her response.

The little girl said, "I just want to see how you drink like a fish."
