Size matters, sensitivity and good manners

Three beautiful moments of today...

1. Figuring out about posting pictures on blogger. After several failed attempt over 24 hours i finally found a forum for bloggers whose blogs are bogged in some way - one suggestion for images that wont upload was maybe the image is too big. I thought to myself "Self, that is a really big file, go back, re size it and try again". I did that and HEY PRESTO - it worked... simple really.

2. Madam 14yo. Who has been REALLY lovely lately. I have been privileged to experience the truly beautiful person she is inside. Exceptionally kind to her brother today, finding some CD's for him to play in his room and being really patient with him, and sister, helping sort out some really cool clothes for her to wear.

3. Canteen at the high school today. It always surprises me that with teenagers getting such a bad rap lately how many really well mannered young people there are out there. It restores my faith in humanity.

I tend to be a bit fond of my teenagers' friends; the extremely broad spectrum of abilities is staggering..even if they can be disgustingly immature at times (well duh)....
I haven't the foggiest idea of how to add to the sidebar, and Elly's in the dark, too;)
