Children – The Greatest Teacher’s We Can Ever Have…

Children – The Greatest Teacher’s We Can Ever Have… This was my first Father’s Day in the United States (celebrated on different days in Sweden and Norway) to be recognized as a father.  The power of the pending arrival of our baby adds to the depth of what the role means to me personally.

This road we are now on gets to transition, and transition in a big way.  My life has these very distinct chapters if you will, and on my 10th year my mom married Ray, who is still my step-father, (they made it!!!) and Mayberry turned into Little House on the Prairie.  Well, okay, so it wasn’t anything like that, but it was a cool transition. These 4 blogs are about gratitude. Good memories. Reflections of things that shape me at this...
