Today I found a quote that I really like. It reminds me of my philosophy for living life:
“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘Wow – What a ride!'”
If parents really understood this, internalized this, and realized that this is the plan of Heaven, I wonder how they would parent differently. If a child is never given feet then wings, how can they turn around and teach their own children how to fly?
