Posted by Droolees Ed Team on

Have you ever dead of the term, “You reap what you sow?” It certainly is true. Would you expect to reap fresh ripe apples after sowing seeds to an orange tree? Or how about reaping walnuts after sowing an almond tree?

You might be thankful for the good habits and regret the bad ones, nevertheless, we can recognize the power of our actions even at a young age.
