What mom said to me when I questioned which of her two daughters she loved more. We had battled over sharing an order of french fries at "Cohen's Hot Dogs" . . . rapidly eating them to grab an advantage over the...
who is made to handle every punch that’s thrown at them. We aren’t made that way. In fact, we’re made to get mad, upset, sad, be hurt, stumble and fall. We aren’t supposed to be able to handle everything. But that’s what makes us stronger in the end, by learning from...
