Ben's Favorite Book

The World According to Mister Rogers. I think all of us aspire to be something more.  That may be a job title, a more fit lifestyle or just gain more knowledge.  We focus so much on what we are not, and this book reminds us all that no matter where you are in your journey, you're doing well.  It reminds us to be present in the moment of those that care about us just the way we are.  Fred Rogers was known for that, and it doesn't discount the desire to be better, but it reminds us that what we are is already important as well.  I think it is a great reminder for us.
