Pondering Pundit

Stacking wood

What happened to taking pride in how hard you worked? Growing up, I can remember being told by my parents and grandparents that the measure of a man is determined by how hard he is willing to work. My parents told me there was this cool feeling of accomplishment in doing a job well done. That feeling is called pride; Being able to look at the work accomplished and to be proud that you’re the one who did it.

I did not understand this concept at first, I thought it was a parental ploy to get me to finish the chore I was assigned. The reality of learning the message came to me in my early teens when my brother and I were assigned the task of splitting fire wood and stacking up along side the house. (Not any old stacking, but the correct way of stacking as instructed by our father.)
