Oh my, this is a noisy world…. Real revelation comes through silence. ~Mr. Rogers

Mr. Rogers was soft-spoken, kind and gentle, reflective person. In an interview he had with Charlie Rose, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djoyd46TVVc Mr. Rogers talked about making time for thought, reflection, and contemplation. He even commented that with the written word, there needed to be white space on the page so that the reader has time to think about and digest what she/he just read.

Join me in following Mr. Rogers’ advice today and sit quietly, even if for only a few moments. It’ll help you press the reset button on your day and your week and help you set yourself up for a good finish to the week.

But…

Is your mind racing, though, and you can’t figure out what to contemplate? Here are a few quotes from Mr. Rogers that can help:
There’s a special place for you. You have a place that no one else has; there is only one like you. ~Mr. Rogers
Would you be mine, could you be mine, won’t you be my neighbor? Won’t you please, won’t you please…please, won’t you be my neighbor? ~Mr. Rogers
You always make each day such a special day. You know how–by just your being you! ~Mr. Rogers
I like you, right now, just the way you are! ~Mr. Rogers

I, too, like you just the way you are!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
Lauren
