From Gordon Atkinson @ Real live Preacher...
My oldest daughter doesn’t believe in God anymore, so she says. She told me this recently at Starbucks.
Starbucks is the place we go to talk. The house is the place where we do the daddy/daughter thing. I enforce tough boundaries, which is my job, and she pushes hard against them, which is hers. Sometimes we get into passionate arguments about this, which can be a strain. But when I take her to Starbucks, it’s like we become two different people. We sit down and she starts talking. She talks to me about everything at Starbucks.
So I like taking her to Starbucks, as you can imagine. It’s our thing and we both know it. I’ll say, “Let’s go to Starbucks,” and she’ll give me the thumbs up. It means “Let’s talk.”
Read it all here, having 21 and 18 year old daughters, I can relate to Gordon's story and find such wisdom in it.
