The best investment

I came across this old Chinese proverb today and it reminded me of my hubby:

"If your vision is for a year, plant wheat.
If your vision is for ten years, plant trees.
If your vision is for a lifetime, plant people."

Isn't that great?!
My hubby totally lives and believes in investing in people.
The best thing is that first and foremost, he invests in our little people. (which aren't so little anymore)
I am so thankful for the passionate way he invests himself into their lives. ~All five of us, are so very blessed! : )

How cool. That should be written in Calligraphy and framed---maybe as a Father's Day gift? :-)

I love this. I also love it when men invest in their families it is the best gift they could ever give them.
