Apple Store Mall at Millenia, Orlando

We seen it on TV. A reputable person, say an elementary school teacher, being a jerk to someone undeserving. In public. It taints everything.

Dear Son, as we both witnessed the dialogue of the bitter man (a casual friend actually) hating Apple Genius employees (and his laptop), we came to a blinding flash of the obvious:

You get out of life what you put in.

This is life’s toughest lesson because we take the test when it’s too late. Do most elders focus on regular exercise and moderate, healthy eating?

Dear Son, It’s Far Easier To Excel In What You Love

Children Love To Monkey Around (most adults do too)

Dear Son, as your learning accelerates in fifth grade, you know how challenging it can be to score well in every subject. It’s far easier to excel in what you love.
