Picking Their Battles

Yesterday we hosted an alumni BBQ for Jeremy's law school and we invited some local attorneys as well. Among our distinguished guests was a lawyer who works for the Family Institute of Connecticut, an organization that fights for pro-life and pro-family causes here in Connecticut.

"I am so impressed with the work you do," I told him, "It must take a great deal of courage to fight for family issues in a state as liberal as Connecticut. I can only imagine the kind of will power and determination that you must have to keep going and not become discouraged."

"Thank you." he replied humbly, "But, you know, there is a reason God gave all that energy to the male half of our species." As he said this, he motioned to where my sons were sitting. Ok, not exactly sitting, but kneeling...on chairs...backwards, and bouncing up and down....with the chairs. Oh, and pulling the hoods of their sweatshirts over their faces...and laughing...loudly. Very loudly.
