God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Did you know that Ohio is considered the Mother of American Presidents? Can you name the 8 presidents that came from Ohio? I had to look it up I could name 4 of the 8.

They are:

William Henry Harrison
Ulysses Simpson Grant
Rutherford B Hayes
James Abram Garfield
Benjamin Harrison
William McKinley
William Howard Taft
Warren G Harding

Did know you were getting a history lesson today did you. Can you name the famous Indian from Ohio History?

Probably the most famous is Tecumseh. There was also:
Blue Jacket
The Prophet

How about famous women from Ohio?

Annie Oakley
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Frances Gage:
During her life, Gage became a leader in the three great reform movements that reshaped American life in the years before the Civil War: the temperance (anti-alcohol) movement, the women's rights campaign and the anti-slavery crusade. Like many women in Ohio prior to the Civil War, Gage was committed to making life better for the disadvantaged. These women saw an American dream that promised equality for all. They fought hard, often against great odds, to make their dream a reality.
And many many more.

Sorry about the history lesson I was playing a game with some friends and found all of this information.
