Thankfulness Mondays – Just Pondering

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.

  1. That is wonderful that they have become decent successful people. It’s also so great to have your family within reach. I’m sure you can be very satisfied, grateful and happy about that.

  2. God bless you for your Faithfulness Diane to put your Children first, I see many Parents who don’t, it’s all about what they want, and even with their Children for some Money comes first, not just for necessities but for earthly Treasure and the Children suffer. The suicide in Teenagers has tripled.

    • Yes, it’s so sad when children are brought into this world, and pushed aside for their own self interests. It then can give children the wrong impression of what a family is, leaving them lacking in self-worth and the inability to know what unconditional love is…. Diane
