Top 10 Thursday: Favorite Quotes

To my loyal readers (yes you awesome people): I would like to apologize for no entry for yesterday's Whatever Wednesday. I .had a very busy morning and last night I slept over a friend's house in preparation for today. Today we attended a Statewide Conference for NJ's Youth Groups and Family Support Organizations. We had a ton of fun and learned a lot but are extremely exhausted as we needed to be up by 6AM (when we normally get up closer to 8 or so). To find a Partnership for (Elementary School Age) Children, Youth Partnership Group (approximately ages 13-21 or older), or FSO near you check a phone book or do a google search by the county you live in. I live in Camden County and the website for YP, Parents Anonymous, and other FSO's is There is also the Camden County Partnership for Children @ I will post some more information about our YP Group at a later date. Looking forward to tomorrow's meeting from 530pm- approximately 830pm. I will make sure to Post the Freebie Friday blogs before then! Now onto today's entry! :)

So, unless we work to strengthen the family, to create conditions under which most parents will stay together, all the rest — schools, playgrounds, and public assistance, and private concern — will never be enough.” -Lyndon Baines Johnson
