Opportunity

Our kids got to have dinner with a favorite teacher today. I knew the first time I met Mr. Smith that he was a special teacher. He is a wise man, a great writer, and an accomplished columnist (well-known in South Africa). We won an auction item back in February. Dinner with him and 4 kids. Each of our two daughters picked their best friend and all 4 had an experience that will stick with them for a long time.

Our kids got to do that because we have the means to pay for the auction item; at a private school that we can afford; in a city that attracted such a unique educator.

All because we are lucky. And because I work my ass off. And because we are always on the lookout for opportunities. And because there was an open bar at the auction.
