Today I am grateful for the good old-fashioned concept of work. We discussed [at Family Home Evening Monday night] that we don't really have a true understanding of what it means to have chores. Not compared to the chores of the generations that preceded us, anyway. Life is pretty convenient. And ease-driven. And pretty great, if you choose to see the great parts.

When I talked to a friend yesterday about having the kids rake leaves, he said "Oh, no. This is 2009. My kids' job is to get good grades. They don't do that kind of stuff."
And as Part II to being grateful for work, I'm also grateful to be IN CHARGE. See that pointing finger? Don't think it doesn't waggle.
