My youngest daughter made her First Communion on Sunday so that gave us the opportunity to have family over afterward to celebrate, including my dad.
My dad is a carpenter, builder, and all-around really handy guy. Basically, the opposite of me.

Telling yourself you can't do anything about your situation because of your genetics or age.
It's NOT your genetics. It's NOT your age. It's the "little things" you CHOOSE to do that are the cause the BIG PROBLEMS you will experience.
