Posted by:

Do you always feel like you are running late, falling behind, or rushing around like a chicken with your head cut off?  If so you are not alone.  My wife and I feel like this on a regular basis, especially around the end of the year.  A popular Catholic speaker, Jesse Romero, likes to remind people that being busy is not necessarily a good thing.  He points out that the letters which make up the word are a great way ...

After Action Report: Prom

Posted by:

Two weeks after my daughter attended the High School Prom, we wrote up our collective thoughts on her attendance.  We wanted to take some time to sort through our emotions, analyze the decision and then write the comments down (and still be a good husband and Father to our nine children).
