I think that all of the people who like me and don’t like me would all agree that I am tenacious almost to the point of relentlessness. I really try to be persistent yet kind, but every now and then I run into situations where my kindness is perceived as weakness and then I have to be a bit more persistent and a teeny bit less kind.
Marriage and raising kids are two areas where one has to be resolved and committed. Well, at least with my marriage and my kids. Now that my children are getting older I am finding myself having to step back more and allow them to use more of what I spent all of these years pouring into them. It works most of the time. That is something to be very thankful for because that has not always been the case.
