    • It's funny, I love to travel. Lately I've been doing it a lot and just recently, it's become less “fun”, less “easy”.Thanks

  2. My mother-in-law and I were in a store shopping once when I saw a little kid throwing a tantrum. The child's mother was frazzled, trying to figure out how to make the child behave without creating a bigger scene. I rolled my eyes at my mother-in-law and said one of those ridiculous "when I have children…" phrases. My mother-in-law just laughed at me and said "Never say never." I have two children now (8,10). Needless to say, I thought of my mother-in-law's words often when they were younger. Everything looks a lot easier when you're judging instead of performing.

    Thanks, Ron, for the great post. It really made me think!
