that is a good question. I'm not sharing my answer though. (guess you probably know the answer anyhow! :)) I'll try better today!

My answer today would probably be no....However, my mother always told me that as long as I do my best, no one can ask or expect more. I just love your quotes. AND, I just received a little package in the mail today. Thank you so much -- you are so clever and I so appreciate your thoughtfulness. You're the BEST! (And Lisa too!).

I'm trying to decide. I tried, but not sure if in everything, I did my best. As a mum, I've found that sometimes I have to just get by with doing what I can, when I can sometimes and hope it's enough.

Awww, I missed his interview - rats! But I'm loving the Olympics, aren't you? I could sit and watch it all day and all night (while knitting of course ;-).
And wasn't Shaun White amazing tonight -- kept expecting him to take off and orbit the earth.
Blessings to you!
Oh, and the "Keep Calm & Cast On" poster can be found here:

oh, i missed this too. great question. i try to do my best but i often find i don't know what the best is in a certain situation. i guess the follow up question would be when you know better, do better - and that i try to do each day. Love these - keep them coming!
