Somewhat piggy-backing on my last post, here’s a quote from “Sacred Parenting” from the chapter on Sacrifice:
…fathers who talk to their children don’t have twenty-eight hours as opposed to silent dads who have just twenty-four. It’s all about where we choose to spend our hours and what we will willingly sacrifice in order to free up some of those hours.
And here sums up the biggest thing my kids are teaching me thus far:
- “When I was about to become a father, my friend Burgess Meredith said, “Your’e gonna find something wonderful – someone you love more than yourself.” For self-centered people, it’s a great blessing.”
