Week 39 of (52) along with Bernadette of Haddon Musings and others, posting of things to be thankful for in our lives, whether they are small or great significance.
Today I’m just thinking of our children; our two sons and one daughter. From the time they are born, you realize what an important role you will have, in helping to guide them into being the best they can be. You hope to instill in them morals, values, faith in God, responsibility, kindness, love…. and just so much more.
You wonder how you will do this and if it is really possible. Then you just start living day by day, issue by issue, challenge by challenge, whether they are 3 or 10 or 15 years of age. The difficulties that arise each stage of life, whether at school or at home you try to help the best that you can, to guide them.
Now, we can look at our children in their 40’s and 50’s, and who they have become, and can say that our hopes dreams and prayers for them, have come to be.
We can see that they are happy, and I am full of thankfulness for that, especially to God, and have such a sense of peace and joy within.
