What is the most difficult job you can think of? Surgeon, pilot, police officer, construction worker? If those are your guesses, you’re not even close 🙂 Being a parent, in our opinion, ranks as the most difficult job. If you are a parent, you know what I’m talking about. You’ve been charged by God, fate, destiny, or whatever higher power you believe in to nurture and shape another living being. How well you do that job will be reflected in how successful in life that little person becomes. That’s pretty overwhelming. You are also putting yourself last most of the time so that you can focus on this part of yourself that you’ve brought into the world. It means putting aside your own personal aspirations and dreams perhaps for 18 years. But what an amazing accomplishment it is when you have succeeded in making a person who is loving, honest, respectful, and has a strong moral compass.
