To Teach Is To Learn Twice

“To teach is to learn twice”. — unknown

Make it a great day. It’s up to you.

Discover a way to teach someone how you give thanks. Teach someone why you give thanks.

Maybe this will help them to be more thankful.

And guess what? You’ll learn more about why and how you do it than you ever imagined. And this will only make you stronger and wiser.

And then you can’t wait for your alarm clock to go off, so you can do it all over again. How cool is that?

Parenting Is Not An Entitlement

Parenting was not an entitlement, much to my surprise.

My wife and I tried for eight years, spent our life savings, and risked failure. All in order to become parents.

Tomorrow, our son turns nine.

Who would have ever thought, all those years ago, that we would finally have a nine year old?

I know who.
