Saturdy Samplings - Three Things
I was playing catch up with my blog reading today and I came across this incredible post by Gutsy Writer. She writes of some very important lessons she learned from her amazing mother about how to raise emotional healthy kids. She also writes about the differences in how certain families teach their children life's lessons.
As I read her post, tears streamed down my face because I realized the many simple lessons that were not put in place when my kids were younger, and I wondered how I could ever make up for these shortcomings. There are cycles that I had hoped would be broken. There are new behaviors that have resulted from stressed relationships and unresolved childhood issues. My one redeeming factor, I believe, is that God has blessed me with very intelligent, compassionate and intuitive children. I can talk to them now about so much more than I ever could before.
I didn't post anything of substance this week, so my sampling is the July 22nd post by Gutsy Writer. Please take a few minutes to read her compelling words and leave her some love when you are finished!
