Dear Weary Mom,
Seems like sometimes we get a reprieve :) This week found my girl participating for Spirit Week, getting ready for homecoming. She is a Senior. She decided to make it count. She's learning about stepping out of her comfort zone my girl is...and I am so proud of her. She is learning with every step to face her fears and be a light perhaps where there is none. She is learning to look at other and their actions with different eyes. She is looking past hurts and seeing the people underneath. People just like you and me. And I would venture to say that she is discovering that it is a little less scary and a whole lot of fun in this instance.
I am proud of my children. They are everything I dreamed of being. They are not afraid to go forward, to risk, to try and to love. That is amazing. I wanted a very different life for them than the one I had growing up. And even though some of the situations have not been perfect, their reactions to them have been humbling for me. We don't have to be perfect parents. We just have to be there, living our convictions and beliefs. I promise you sweet mama, they see, they STILL copy all that you do. It still matters,
even especially at 17 and 16. What you impart into their little souls stick. And it makes all the difference in the world. Thankful.
