    Don't count your chickens before you cross the road.

    Lovely!

    As part of our night time prayers-we say them with our daughter- I say:Our lives are yours, Lord Jesus, do what you will and give us the strength to accept your will with joy and faith in our hearts"" And I sign during it (some American sign lang. some made up) as when I started that prayer our little one couldn't talk. She usedto put her little 4 year old arms up in the air(during "our lives are yours" and sign love and heart like a true little evangelist but now, well, she isn't so evangelistic- or angelic- She likes to say her own prayers. I'm all for that- but lately they are for Cruella DeVil (sp) from 102 Dalmatians. She is VERY upset with the scene with Cruella going in the oven. It IS a scary scene- bad Disney!!

    How about "don't count your chickens before they cross the road?"

    Did your mom ever meet Yogi Berra, Purrrtricia?
    One of my favorite sayings of his:

    Oh my mother had one to suit any situation, here's one I often wondered about, "People who live in glass houses shouldn't beat behind (yes behind) the bush." I don't remember what I was doing at the time that prompted that one, I might have blocked that particular memory. LOL
