how some of my biggest childhood frustrations became some of my favorite things
about my parents.I really do have
creative parents.They challenged me to
do without. They challenged me to find substitutions.They challenged me to enjoy different
childhood pursuits.They provided real
fun games.They helped me to understand
how important it is to try one's best.At 8, these lessons were a bit trying. ;-)At 40-something, these lessons are
invaluable.I am thankful.
