Wise thoughts from Sophie:
(1) The other day my parents came home bickering about an incident that occurred on their way home with Sophie. Half an hour after returning home, they were still bickering. Sophie looked at me and said earnestly, "Why are they still talking about this? It happened in the past. They should focus on what's happening now."
(2) Earlier this week, Sophie shared with me, "I don't know why people don't like the rain. I *love* the rain!" Reminds me of the Arnold Beisser quote: "The tragic or the humorous is a matter of one's perspective."
