One day as a small child, Thomas Edison came home from school and gave a piece of paper to his mother. He said to her, “Mom, my teacher gave this paper to me and told me only you are to read it.

Please teach him yourself.”

Many of my women friends seem to make it look so easy, so why do I feel like there’s just not enough hours in the day? Why does it seem so easy for others and such a challenge for me?
