A person ain't supposed to be envious of something someone else has..., or in this case, wrote. Obviously I've proven to you I ain't perfect, and being so, will admit I've read many articles and stories written by others where I allowed a teensy bit of envy creep into my feelings.
On the other hand, I've always believed that no matter how fast you are in a gun fight, there's always someone, somewhere, who's faster and more accurate than you. The same is true in writing..., and in parenting. When my boys were growing up, I would see other parents handle situations with their kids that caused me to take the same course of action. Of course, there were some that showed me a way I DIDN'T like.
Regardless and as a result, the following really hit a nerve with me and I believe many of you will feel the same nerve twitch a little bit. It's one of those articles that I allow a bit of envy to tickle my insides simply because I agree with it 100 percent. Please, read the following and see if you don't agree.
