The Spirit of Youth.

One day, I observed the little one. I smiled watching him with his Ironman Mask on, crawling around, happy as could be. Suddently I recalled a virtue I heard, maintain a Sprit of Youth. In that moment I resolved to smile more and enjoy the little things. Most of all feed the youthful wonderI am curious what are some lessons you have, or could, learn from children?See More

Able to fix any normal houshold repair. Walt mows his own lawn with his push mower. He never admits to his own weakness and failing health. Choosing instead to…See More
