Things we do daily – sometimes even several times per day – that we don’t even think about. Usually it’s not until we can’t do them anymore that we realize how fortunate we are.
Or perhaps, as in my case, when you watch your child do simple things early on in their life do you begin to feel the same way.
There’s always a fine line as a parent between you helping your child, doing things for them, or you letting them figure things out for themselves. It’s very difficult to tell which option you should exercise and when.
So on Saturday morning, I sat and watched my Kindergartener for what felt like 5 hrs put on and ultimately tie her shoes.
I was walking out of my work building today and there are two guys walking out behind me. Both guys were wearing their matching pink t-shirts but were very manly general contractors (that has nothing to do with the story, but was worth noting in my eyes).
Anyway, I could hear their one-sided conversation. One asked the other; “Do you know what’s the number one cause of death in America? Heart Disease. Ya know what’s the number two cause of death? Suicide. Absolutely”.
Well this guy was full of uplifting information on a Monday.
