Life can take the wind out of your sails, smacking you in the face with unexpected surprises.
Take, for example, being a parent. Before you were a parent, you probably had some strong ideas about how you would raise your kids. You knew what was right and what was wrong. What you would do and what you wouldn’t do. How your kids would behave and how they wouldn’t behave. Lucky you. You were blessed with ignorance.
Then the kids arrived. What a humbling experience.
So it got me to thinking… What does being a parent teach us about ourselves and life?
