There have been some proud moments in my life, but one of the proudest came the other day when Paco got his first job.
Our neighbors made him offer to do some planting in the backyard and Paco really took the responsibility seriously.
He committed to showing up on time, being prepared, and ensuring that his customers were satisfied during and after the job.
He just went out there, did the job to the best of his ability, and was beaming with pride when he came back with the first earned dollars of his life.
The value of a hard day’s work and seeing it through to completion. If my kids can learn these traits, I’ll feel that I’m doing a good job as a parent.
