Watching them grow…

One of the principle sources of deep joy in this life of ours comes from watching our children develop and grow.

Kids get a bad press. All those raised eyebrows and exasperated sighs. The broken ornaments and filthy clothes. The noise on a Sunday afternoon when all should be quiet. The lurking spectre of the teenage years with all those erupting emotions. The cost of shoes and designer clothing.

But they give so much more than they they take.

I speak as a father of a 10 year old and a 14 year old.

Kids, they are great…
