Most of you know that I’m now a regular contributor on eMoms at Home.

Well, we’ve just published my first post, 12 Things My Three Year-Old Has Taught Me About Building Relationships.

In essence, I share how watching my three year-old daughter, A’esha, make and play with friends has given me insights to creating deeper, more rewarding and mutually beneficial relationships with both friends and clients.

    Yep, sweet post. I’m still a bit amazed that you were able to distinguish so many characteristics like that…

    I enjoyed reading your post. However, you seemed to leave out one insight gleaned from your daughter to which you had previously alluded. You said in your opener, “She doesn’t shun mean kids. She just chooses not to play with them.”

    We’ve only got so much energy to go around…!

    Thanks. God willing, there’s more to come.


    I guess I sit around sometimes, just watching both my kids, and actually think about how what I’m seeing is affecting me internally. And one thing I can’t help but notice is the raw, unabated joy they experience just in being alive.


    Ooh, good one. Thanks for adding it. I’m going back over to the eMoms post and adding this one. Thanks.
