“We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.” (Jesse Owens) As we embark on the holiday season, let’s keep a few things in perspective, and maybe you should read this statement to your children. Yes, we made it through another tough and challenging year. Still, the determination to provide for our household, dedication to family and craft, self-discipline to forge forward in the face of many odds, and supreme effort is what brought us through. This should help our young dreamers understand it’s not all fun and games.
