  1. Hi Bon, Your post prompted me to write a 50 word Friday response –

    Breaking the Vicious Cycle

    She hated math.
    I said, “We’re going to play math.”
    One hour later she said, “I can do this all day!”
    Next day she said, “I think I have underestimated my ability.”
    She told me, “You should be famous because you make math fun.”
    Best compliment ever. My heart smiled!

    • Thanks so much, Sue. That’s a wonderful one! So I felt compelled to respond with another heart smiling 50 Word Friday response.

      Changing the World

      I noticed that the world was full of math hatred. I was troubled. And I worked to change it.

      Until the beautiful Daughter was born one sunny September afternoon – my work took on new meaning.

      I can’t let her grow up in a world like this. Everything’s about to change!
