    When Dad gives a suggestion, I should listen, and do it right away.

    It’s easier to get it right the first time, especially when it comes to PTO on employees’ paychecks.

    @Sarah! Ha ha! I have a lot of relationships like that in my life. It turns out, when people take the time to show me a direction, most of the time it’s because they love me.

    @Charity: So true! My students pay me in January and you wouldn’t believe how frequently the year is wrong.

    As an employee, it’s better to enjoy your freedom than demand a place at the decision table.

    Don’t freak out on my brother because he made a mistake. It’s really not a big deal.
    I made the same mistake yesterday, and the Holy Spirit immediately reminded me, “See? Don’t be so quick to judge!” It was one of those painful Hebrews 4:12 moments, “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
    Proverbs 12:18, “There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
    Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue,and those who love it will eat its fruits.”
    Needless to say, I’m trying to be silent (as far as correction goes) unless it really matters. :)

    @Nathan: I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted a seat at the table right up until the moment I actually got one. I’ve found that being better than everyone else is a lot easier when I’m not doing their job.

    @Ellen: I have those moments all the time. It’s really embarrassing.

    That life is a vapor, and I shouldn’t get too attached.
