My son, Nick Glassett, has started his own blog called Orign Leadership and I am so proud of him.
This is the boy who once told me that there was no point to reading. (About 16 years old.) He informed me that any good book gets made into a movie and so he could just watch the movie and there was no need to ever read.

As a teacher and a READING teacher at that, I was speechless. I simply nodded and let it go. No sense arguing with a 16 year old who knows all about the world. I assumed that if reading was pointless writing was also not necessary.
Imagine my surprise when a few years ago Nick started talking about the books he was reading. I didn't let on about his statements from the past and his thoughts on reading. I listened and even bought a few of the books he was reading. I fascinated that he had changed his mind about reading.
In July, Nick decided to start a blog. I was intrigued but cautious. periodically he would send me a link to a post he had written and I was always impressed with his writing. It is clear, concise and entertaining. He makes me so proud! I have always thought he was the brightest, funnest son a mom could have. But now, he is sharing it with the world. The world will see what I have always seen!
