Book we're reading...
Jokingly, I said, "I guess I sound just like his mother, huh?" She fervently shook her her up and down and said, "Uh-huh." Lesson: Don't ask for the truth unless you're ready to handle it. Anyway, we discussed the first two chapters and I hope she makes some connections for herself as we continue reading. Because as Dr. Carson says about his mother, Sonya Carson:
"Over a period of years, with Mother's encouragement...I started believing that we really could do anything we chose to do. Maybe she brainwashed us into believing that we were going to be extremely good and highly successful a whatever we attempted. Even today I can clearly hear her voice in the back of my head saying, "Bennie, you can do it. Don't you stop believing that for one second."
