Brilliant author and COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, was grieving to a friend because there was a father-child activity that her recently deceased husband, Dave, was no longer here to do.
Sheryl shares, "We came up with a plan to fill in for Dave... But I want Dave. I want option A.” While crying to her friend, he put his arm around her and said, “Option A is not available. So let’s just kick the shit out of option B.”
We recently decided we need to homeschool Greyson. We aren't sharing the details, other than to say this is the right thing for Greyson right now. Life is too unpredictable to speak in forevers.

This is not our Option A, but you better believe we are going to kick the shit out of our Option B.
