What I Hope My Children Become

There are so many things that I want my children to learn but I have been discovering that in order for them to become someone of integrity, compassion, generosity and all other exemplary attributes and rather than simply doing good things, I often need to be an example for them.
I have long loved this story as it illustrates clearly two paths that could have been taken.  I hope I can be as kind in my everyday activities.  Sometimes though, it is my children who see things much more clearly and are the ones suggesting we give while I am the one hoping to hide the boots for the sake of a laugh.
