Chad's Words of Wisdom
"First you had a chai, and that didn't work," he said.
"Next you went to Taekwondo," he continues.
"And that didn't work," I say.
"Then you had some cookies, and that didn't work."
"Okay. Okay. I get your point," I say. I proceed to go get the ice cream. I had enough energy to accompany him to get the kids at school, run to a massage and get groceries. Overall I really do believe that "Self indulgence is the enemy of gratitude," and "It's more blessed to give than receive," however yesterday I didn't fall on that side of life quite as much. I just received, and sometimes that's good too.
