Matt and Dad working on homework and bills

This doesn’t make sense!

Dad, is being a grown-up hard?

Sometimes.

But having wonderful children, a great wife, a Savior who loves me, and a caring Father in Heaven makes me not mind the hard times—because they are just part of the good times.

Is being a child hard?

Sometimes.

But when we have great parents like you and Mom, we don’t mind the hard times so much either.

Thank you. Do you need a little help with that homework?

Yes, please.
