My 14-year-old son Elijah and I had been to the store and were on our way back. I’m not sure how the subject came up, but I took a moment to plant a few seeds with my son about the kind of man he might like to be. He’s a very kind and thoughtful young man — very helpful and has a genuine love for people.
When I spot that kind of person, I can’t resist giving him the inside secrets to getting even better results in life. I suggested to Elijah that he take the opportunity to learn as much as he could about home repairs from Chris (his stepfather). I explained that if he knows how to fix things, it’ll give him the edge when he’s ready to find a wife. Women find a man who can fix things incredibly attractive.
We walked in the house and Chris was sweeping the floor (without being asked).
I pointed to Chris and said, “Now that, that’s just hot!”
