....We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.....

I recopied this because I think it needs repeating over and over again. It's a great thought when it comes to raising children.

We have many great sucessful men and women in this country. We, too often, forget that it is what the child had to go through to achieve that success.
