Truth manages to find a way home to my heart in the strangest ways sometimes. I have spent numberless hours lately thinking about how interesting it is to be a parent. There are so many things I want to teach my children, good habits or character traits I want to model for them so that they each choose to make them part of their own lives along the way. I want for all my children to learn so much; yet sometimes I feel like I am really the one learning all the lessons. (I hope this really isn’t true!) Don’t get me wrong, I am not giving up! Nor do I mind the learning processes. Raising a family is certainly the best “school” I have ever atttended; and, it has taught me not only how to learn, but gives me an opportunity for on-the-job training in so many areas. What more could I want? Well, an opporunity to enjoy myself with the rich rewards of a loving group surrounding me. Oh, wait! I have that, too! Providence is good! We are so blessed!
Children are teachers, too
