Parenting has forced my wife and I to come face-to-face with basic human needs. Not only does our son rely on us 100% for his care, but he has challenged my wife and I to meet ours… most noticeably: sleep!
It made me realize how much I have taken food, shelter, warmth, water, and sleep for granted. I have been fortunate enough that those things have always been available. For that, I am extremely grateful. When you are surrounded by people who have everything they need, it’s very easy to realize that some people around the world go without.
Everyday I spent with my son, I’m surprised by how much I have learned from him.
