Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
I watched a man I know help his wife take care of their babies.
“How did you learn to be such a good dad?” I asked. He explained that his father had been a great dad. His mother had died when he was three, leaving his father on his own to care for him and his baby sister.
“So he just stepped up to the plate?” I asked.
“Like Babe Ruth,” he said.
What – or who – is challenging you? Are you creating healthy challenges or unnecessary chaos? Do you want it just because you can’t have it, or do you really want it? Are you stepping up to the plate and accepting the real challenges in your life?
