Lori, this is so true! I am reminded about an incident that happened just
last week. I was trying to locate a recipe by thumbing through an
assortment of recipe books. My 14 year-old daughter offered to help.
"Mom," she asked, "why don't you just look in the index?" Naturally, she
found the recipe! Now since I taught her early on to use the indexes of
books to help locate things, don't ask my why I wasn't doing so myself.
