My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

What a fun game! I know this is cheating, but "The Thinker's Thesaurus" would help a lot in this game. This is a great reference guide for anyone who loves words and loves vocabulary. You don't get the standard synonyms, but more unusual ones (and real ones, too), used in context as well. Plus, most entries have a "clarifier" so you get the most spot-on word, instead of one that's just "pretty close." And it's entertaining to boot!

By the way, I love the fabric outlines/borders/whatever on your blog. It's just beautiful.

This is the second comment in two weeks that has included a commercial for the Thinker's Thesaurus.

All future such commercials will be deleted outright, good guess or not.
