Pretty much any parent will tell you, our kids teach us MUCH more than we could ever teach them. Here are a few lessons they've had on display this summer that I just had to share:
Empathy: the art of making your expression match someone else's for awhile
Industry: Our willingness to learn from the generations before us
connects both teacher and student to something bigger than themselves.
Serving: Learning to do things for yourself is great.
Learning to do things for others is even better.
Flair: There are certain mundane tasks one simply can't avoid in life.
However, one always has the choice to do them with style.
Uniqueness: Be proud of who you are, quirks and all.
"Today you are you! That is truer than true.
There is no one alive more you-er than you!" - Dr. Seuss
Tech-Savvy: Can't get the perfect selfie, no matter how hard you try?
Just put on a pair of sunglasses.
Behind every superhero mask is someone who wants to feel important and do big things.
It's our job to convince those people they are just as important without the mask.
Looking good will never replace hard work.
You have to be willing to sacrifice to achieve your goals.
Don't give up! Never stop learning and searching.
Often, the answers are closer than we think.
