Happy President's Day


I am not ashamed to admit that I love President's Day. (well maybe just a little....)

So today as well as making crafts with the girls and putting away our Valentine decorations, I'm thinking of some of my favorite quotes from my favorite President:

A woman is the only thing I am afraid of that I know will not hurt me.

Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?

As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy.

Ballots are the rightful and peaceful successors to bullets.

Abraham Lincoln is my favorite President. An obvious choice, I know. He only became my absolute favorite a few years ago, after I read this book:


It was a huge book, but I didn't want it to end. And even though I knew how it would end, I may or may not still have teared up when he died. It's a lot more sad after you just read 850 pages and came to feel like you personally knew him.

How could you not love a man with this kind of humor:

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?

Or who says things like this:

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.

I just love him. He reminds me a little of my Grandpa, soft-mannered, unfailingly kind, and (of course) always honest. I think he has a lot in common with Jesus also. Those are three people for sure who I would give as answers to that question "if you could invite 8 people, living or dead, to a dinner party, who would you choose?".
