What you do in your home is being recorded. No, this is not a post about outsiders using cameras to invade your privacy. But, there are people you know watching your every move and it sets the course for their lives.
Unmasked It’s Halloween so naturally a post related to something “Halloweenie” makes sense, eh? My kids have always been a little freaked out by masked individuals and, for the most part, their Halloween costumes didn’t include a mask. In fact, here was a Facebook update my 20 yr old daughter posted today: Today is not […]
Remember playing that game with friends or your family? We would do it on car trips. If you’ve never played, it’s simply a game where one person thinks of anything in the world and then you take turns asking “yes”/”no” questions to see if you can guess what it is. Well, today’s 20 question game […]
**AFTER THE REVIEW READ HOW YOU CAN WIN ONE OF TWO COPIES OF THIS BOOK TO BE GIVEN AWAY ON FATHER’S DAY**** When I got asked by the publisher to review a book for dads, I was excited to tackle the challenge. I’ve not done a lot of critical reviews in my lifetime. Well, actually […]
There are so many memorable moments in our kids lives as we share life with them. There are funny moments, sad moments, scary moments, angry moments, touching moments and crazy, chaotic and challenging moments. Today’s challenge is going to require a little work for the older minds in the group, especially men who tend to […]
We live in one of the greatest countries this world has ever known. But, one thing we don’t really do well is celebrate the passage of our children into key stages of their growing up. However, the impact of these celebrations and rites of passage just may be the most important we ever share with them…even greater than graduations and weddings!!
On the surface, it’s kind of a sobering thought to envision that day when you will be eulogized or talked about by others in the past tense. Yet, there will be a day when we will all be a memory to someone. So, Bryan, Erin and Jaclyn, I know one day you’ll share the life and times (both the good and challenging) Abramovitz family with your family and friends. When the sun sets on my life and I’m ushered into the arms of Christ, in addition to the outrageous, frustrating, and sometimes dramatic memories we shared together, I simply hope you remember that…:
Whenever Mom’s gone, we party. Not saying my mom’s not fun, but when we’re with my dad, we get pizza, movies, ice cream and other good stuff. 🙂 I think most dads are just wired to be the kids who’ve never grown up and therefore like to party it up with their own kids. This is a great thing, don’t get me wrong but I think sometimes Dad’s forget their other big responsibility…disciplining.
Growing up in a home that was irreligious (not anti-Christian, just no evidence of faith lived out), the practices of faith were never expressed in a way that I would catch them. Prayer was not an everyday practice except for the mealtime ritual speed mumbling of “Come Lord Jesus, be our guest. And let these […]
The door between our garage and mud room opened. Our daughter was home. My wife and I were planted on the sofa when the door opened. But, this was not a typical return home. “I had an accident” were the words she blurted out
