Which of the tasks listed do you currently find most helpful in keeping life simple? Which item on the list should you adopt in order to simplify your life this month?
De cluttering and ridding the home of "stuff" is an ongoing task at our house and it goes a long way in making life much more pleasant... I used to keep a journal but have gotten out of that habit.. I think it would probably be a very good way to refocus the day,,
4. What did you do the summer after you graduated from high school?
Right after school was out my girl friend along with my parents went to Virginia Beach for a week (1968)... it was a great time for us because we girls had the freedom of being adults on our own during the day and early evening. but the confidence in knowing our parents were right there if we needed them... We had a great, fun, and exciting time being with other summer break revelers... I then went home and worked the rest of the summer in a department store making money to see me through first quarter of college.
5. Are you a fan of podcasts? If so what's a favorite?
6. Do you think today's fathers have it harder, easier, or just different than fathers in the past?
I have to agree with our host's answer,,,
"Not harder or easier, just different. Every generation has it's challenges, expectations, and disappointments when it comes to parenting and I don't think that's any less true for today's fathers. "
It is only by God's grace that parents have the confidence needed to raise their children to their full potential.
7. Tell us one way you're like your father? Or not at all like your father if that's easier?
I am much like my paternal side of the family... shaped just like my granny! Oh, me!... I inherited their double chins and
I think their point of view... both politically and in relationships. My dad was very easy going.. a peacemaker and very unassuming.. I think I am much like that!
