“Values are not just words, values are what we live by. They're about the causes that we champion and the people we fight for.” --John Kerry
Julie's Hump Day Hmm this week is about values. I had planned a post about religion because I have yet to discuss religion on my blog. There's a good reason for that. I'm very conflicted and I'm frequently hesitant to discuss the one area of my life where I have absolutely no confidence.
I can't do it. I absolutely cannot hit publish on that post. So instead, I'd like to share some things I would like to give to my boys:
a love of books
a love of music
a love of art
an inquisitive mind
a love of nature
the ability to lose gracefully
a love of mankind
a healthy dose of skepticism
a love of laughter
a love of competition
the ability to win gracefully
a love of animals and small children
loss and learning
The sun, the moon, and the stars. I don't ask for much, do I?
I have a new review of Nina Garcia's book The Little Black Book of Style up on my review blog, along with pictures of my shamefully decadent shoe collection and my favorite pair of sexy shoes. Go read it!
