My Children
Jonathan Todd and Leah Rose

My children have truly been one of my life's greatest gifts and treasures. Their curiosity, passion, ambitions(blind), intelligence, and their approaches to their personal responsibility issues is a wonderful thing to watch as we continue to grow. I often tell them, "every day is a test" and they live up to that high standard (most days). As they grow and continue to challenge themselves, I always find an important purpose and meaning to my day that no other situation can create for me. Their support of my work and willingness to participate as models, guinea pigs, and personal advisors provides me a compass and direction for which I am grateful and blessed. As they work on their life's plans, it is rewarding to see how they conduct their affairs. I try every day to live up to their expectations and be the role model they deserve.
