I love talking to parents. I’ve seen and heard the same reactions from parents in each generation. As a leader or parent, you can probably relate. “You should’ve seen that boy. He’s only 4 and he can manage that soccer ball like a 10 year old. He’s a chip off the old block!!” One dad boasted as buttons flew off his shirt.
Recently, I made an impromptu decision to go visit my mom and spend the night. I just wanted to spend some uninterrupted time with my mom. It was a chilly, rainy evening, and I was craving soup. I stopped on the way at a little family restaurant and picked up two bowls of warm vegetable soup. When I arrived at my childhood home, I found my mom had set a lovely table for just the two of us.
