Witness of Parents — Advent Day 10
Thanks to my parents growing up in DC meant unusual trips to locations like Teddy Roosevelt Island in the middle of the Potomac River. What I treasure about those trips was how even with tight budgets, my parents showed us the hidden wonders of our hometown. It wasn’t always perfect, but the core lessons remain. One of which is to be courteous to everyone, even when they might not be to you. Respect goes a long way! My final thought on this post comes from Orville Wright (yes, one of the Wright brothers). He said, “We were lucky enough to grow up in an environment where there was always much encouragement to children to pursue intellectual pursuits.” I was too and am grateful for it.
