What a turn around.....
All my grown life, as a boss, I do treat my employees with great respect, kindness and sometimes love, but never thought about instilling a winning atmosphere into the work place, sure we want great things, but, sometimes I think we all get away from the truth. GREAT story Lori, as usual!!! YOU ROCK! Shalom, Guy

My daughter, a 5 year old had made trouble and I lost my cool and started yelling at her. She looked at me with her honest eyes and said, "MOMMY, that's not how Bas Yisroel (Jewish girls) talk." I did not know how to respond, what a chuzpa to teach your mommy, but then I realized she was right. My daughter the bas yisroel.

Terrific insight on your part, Lori.
When my older daughter fought me taking swimming lessons, I knew deep in my heart, this was one battle I had to win, for her sake. I was petrified of going into the pool, after I nearly drown in a lake at 6 years old. I was damned to have my MIndy ever go through such trauma like that. I am so proud when I watch my daughter swimming so confidentally and gracefully. She also excels in her studies in school, well above my achievements. Good going Mindy girl. I love you so much. Mindy's little sister Tehilla is also excelling in her studies as well.

inspiration to live by
This reminds me of how my late grandmother encouraged me to love the game of Scrabble, which led me to win a decent cash prize in a Scrabble tournament 10 years ago.
We should certainly put envy aside when it comes to those surpassing our abilities if they are inspired by us. After all, it is more important to do one's best than be the best. It all depends on one's self-satisfaction and self-actualization and who was there to inspire.
