As a student carried a large pair of scissors to me, I was reminded of Grammie Trites and how she taught me to carry them. To be safe in case of a fall, she showed me how to wrap my hand around the closed blades and keep the scissors pointed down.
I find it interesting that our children, who can aim a ball at a target over and over, can't hit the laundry basket with their clothes. letters
I enjoy writing A, L, M and N in cursive. I do not enjoy writing D, F, J and K in cursive. There are many cursive letters that I don't like so maybe that's one of the reasons I like to print.
It's a word that is so often used as an expression, not necessarily a belief. But it's still a word I am not a fan of as it seems to imply that there is no work involved, no skill involved, no God involved.
I clicked a Ted Talk by accident, but I stayed to listen as the speaker started with a little paper ketchup cup. She pointed out that many do not know that the folds can be opened to hold more ketchup. It becomes 3 times its original size. It caught my attention, because it was news to me! I even tried it at the movie theater yesterday (and Eliza may have reconsidered being with me as I excitedly told the couple beside me about it)!
Side note: The speaker, Janine Driver, spoke of how there is "untapped potential hiding in plain sight" in the paper cup and that it can be the same with people. The potential may be hiding in plain sight or a person sees it but has not done anything about it. She then speaks of three words to focus on to help reach the potential or dream. She ends with asking, "What will be your ketchup cup story?"
