The time to extend

One of the nuns from my high school wrote a great essay about her father that was printed on the NYT website June 19. Find it here: http://parenting.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/06/19/a-mother-superior-remembers-her-dad/

I liked this, which feels so relevant with all the health stuff I'm dealing with right now:

“Of all the things Dad taught me, the most important is this: now is not the time to retreat, but to extend. When the waters rise, row in and help out. The oxygen you provide others just might save your life.”
