The one in the middle isn’t ours. We’ll claim the other two on our income tax. Benjamin wants to be like me. I tell him to aim higher. Emily wants to be like her big brother. He gets annoyed. I tell him it’s an honor. He’ll get it some day.
Report cards came in the mail today. Very thankful for the results. Very thankful for their thirst for knowledge and their ability to perform.
I’m also reminded about a cousin who is autistic. Things we take for granted don’t come as easily to her. She has issues with communication. Reading and writing are challenging for her. But she’s in school. And she’s growing.
She also has a soul, a sweet spirit and is still blessed by God. We can gather inspiration from her smile and her innocence.
For those of you who have a business, do you pay attention to the children that come in? The parents will remember it if you do. Watch them and listen to them. You might find your inspiration in the smallest places.
