"It's in the Genes"

Sometimes I wonder if I have an influence on my children's lives. I wonder if they listen and hear me. I wonder if they see how I live and will choose to model their lives after mine. This is a scary thing; because I do understand that they will not only (hopefully) model the good things in my life, but that they will also model the things that I do that are not so wholesome. I wonder.

But do I really have to wonder. Though some where I live in Western Pennsylvania may think we all are born with the black and gold gene, the fact is, loving our Steelers is a learned behavior.
Thankfully. 'Cause when that first rebellious child comes home one day wearing brown and orange... well, look out below.

God help that child when, God forbid, that day comes.

in all seriousness: great point, Jake.
