Quote of the week and the week to come


"Painful as it may be, a significant emotional event can be the catalyst for choosing a direction that serves us, and those around us, more effectively. Look for the learning." ~ Louisa May Alcott

Though Louisa May Alcott, (11-29-1832-03-06-1888) is often associated with the sweetness of her characters in Little Women, she was a tough woman, shaped largely by her experience growing up in poverty. The beloved writer wrote what she called "moral pap" for the young" because it paid well.
