You can also ask me anything.
In case of anything happening to me: Be very careful not to ridicule your children or laugh at them. Always try & talk very quietly to children.
Never shout or frighten them, as otherwise you lose their delightful trust in you. Remember how your father, by shouting at you, & making you feel uncomfortable, lost all your real affection. None of his sons are his friends, because he is not understanding & helpful to them."
There are thousands of people out there with the same degree you have; when you get a job, there will be thousands of people doing what you want to do for a living. But you are the only person alive who has sole custody of your life. Your particular life. Your entire life. Not just your life at a desk, or your life on the bus, or in the car, or at the computer. Not just the life of your mind, but the life of your heart. Not just your bank account, but your soul.
People don’t talk about the soul very much anymore. It’s so much easier to write a résumé than to craft a spirit. But a résumé is cold comfort on a winter night, or when you’re sad, or broke, or lonely, or when you’ve gotten back the chest X ray and it doesn’t look so good, or when the doctor writes ‘prognosis, poor.’"
