Children See. Children Do.

Is it obvious that my children are gone this weekend? Unfortunately Mark isn't feeling well so our date night is centered around relaxation rather than what we had initially planned.

I realize that my thought process may appear random but I associate this video with the last one I posted. Again, an extremely powerful message that makes a very important point whether you are a parent or not.

On the B Side: I am grateful for the many positive influences and examples in this life. President Boyd K. Packer makes an excellent point when he stated, "Remember that trouble attracts attention! We travel the highway with thousands of cars moving in either direction without paying much attention to any of them. But should an accident occur, we notice immediately. If it happens again, we get the false impression that one one can go safely down the road. One accident may make the front page, while a hundred million cars that safely pass are not regarded as worth mentioning." We need to spend more time focusing on the many who travel safely instead of the accidents and by this I mean that I believe it is important to be thankful for the many outstanding examples that are provided for children knowing that there are bad ones out there but they don't have to be the norm.
