Did I mention that I have four children? They have kept me busy for a very long time, but now that two of them are semi out of the house (they do return) I seem to have more time on my hands.
Before I go on about my children let me explain what I think about them. I hope you concur. First and last, they are the BEST teachers I have ever had, hands down. Especially my first. And not for the reasons you think. They teach me everything I need to know about life. They teach empathy, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, and unconditional love. And to talk equally out the other side of my mouth, they bring out the worst in me, bring me to the brink of child abuse, and completely give me every grey hair on my head.
The fact that we’ve survived each other, is a gift.
