Pull Your Wagon

By: David Leonhardt

The Little Lady offers so many lessons. Almost two now (just a couple days), she went for a ride with her 14-month old cousin in a wagon. We adults took turns pulling . . . until Little Lady decided that SHE wanted to pull. And once she got her hands on the handle, pity the adult foolish enough to try to relieve her of her responsibilities!

Was it easy for her to pull the heavy and bulky wagon? No.

Did she stop after a minute? No. Five minutes? No. Ten minutes? No. It was almost as if she knew this was a test of character and she wanted to get an A+

As adults, we face daily choices: take the easy way out and just go along for the ride, or do the best we can do and be the best we can be. I am sure every one of us chooses both options several times a day. Let's be conscious of those decisions today.
