I don’t necessarily mean that she influenced your love of reading, although maybe she did, but she gave birth to you and therefore you exist. For that reason alone, you can give thanks.

Step Back

Step Back Flip on the television for a half hour and unless you’re watching cartoons, you’re likely to see footage of a war, a natural disaster, a human catastrophe, or the latest celebrity’s fall from grace. Click onto a news website and you’ll see mudslinging all over the headlines while [...]

Straight Up

2018-02-02T12:11:38+00:00

Straight Up If you’re like me, you’ve often interpreted your spouse’s words incorrectly. For example, if my wife says, “fine” but her arms are crossed, her eyes are like slits and her tone is sharp enough to cut wood, it doesn’t mean everything is okay. Or how about when you [...]

Mama Mia!

Mama Mia! I watched a woman drive her van into the parking lot of the local grocery store. I was there waiting in the car for my wife to come out and this lady pulled into the spot in front of me. She opened the driver’s side door slowly as [...]

Good, Selfish Parenting

2017-10-03T16:25:03+00:00

Good, Selfish Parenting Years ago a guy sat in my office and called me selfish because I have four kids. He was ashamed of me, he said, because I was so egocentric that I had gone and tried to create myself all over again, four times. Little versions of me, [...]

2017-09-25T12:29:57+00:00

Perfect Parenting Before my first child was even out of the womb, I felt comfortable that I had parenting figured out. I was dead serious that I was going to be a perfect parent.  My kids were not going to be the ones running around in a grocery store upset [...]
