Feb 16, 2015

Right Wrong post itAs a youngster, we are pretty sure we know everything about everything. I can’t tell you how many times I have attempted to give one of my younger sisters advice about something, only to be met with resistance because they are certain they know what they are doing, and know more about life than their silly older brother.
