The Phrase that Pays

KJ – All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. Ralph Waldo Emerson

JS – If you hire people just because they can do a job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood and sweat and tears.” -Simon Sinek

JW – Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. – Mohandas Gandh

JM – Give a man a match he will be warm for a minute. Set a man on fire he will be warm for the rest of his life. Anonymous

EB – He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander. Aristotle

JD – Happy Birthday, Maggie!

MJD – I love my dad.

Today’s is Maggie’s 6th birthday.

Hard to believe as it still seems like just yesterday it was a cool July day just like today and we were driving Maggie home from the hospital for the first time.

Having kids and watching them grow is nothing short of a miracle. CS Lewis said that “miracles are the retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.”

As I pour myself into being a dad for our two girls I am reminded of the small part I am playing in this larger cycle of life.

Playing the role of the father to two little miracles that will grow up to become the person that only they are capable of becoming.

Wow. That’s all I can say….wow.

Make it a great weekend.

Jake

I have attached a picture of Maggie helping me “un”-decorate my office today when she came in to work with me this morning.
