I love this quote from Sam Levenson. Sam was one of ten children and he was raised by immigrant parents during the depression.
"Friday night's dinner was a testimonial banquet to Papa. For that hour, at least, he was no longer the oppressed victim of the sweatshops, the harassed, frightened and unsuccessful breadwinner, but the master to whom all heads bowed and upon whom all honor was bestowed. He was our father, our teacher, our wise man, our elder statement, our tribal leader."
If only all men (in books, movies, TV shows and in reality) were shown this sort of respect and if only all men lived in such a way to deserve it. The world would be a different place.
In our home the world is far away as Scott loves and leads our little imperfect tribe and I sure love him for it. We LOVED celebrating him yesterday and I am so thankful for all he does for me and our children.
