I found a fabulous group writing project for moms. There’s even a prize! The topic is “three things I want my kids to …” You fill in the blank. This post is my entry to that project.
1. I want my kids to experience the joy of a relationship with their Maker — to find the peace and contentment that comes with that relationship. God will be with them when I can’t be. It’s an awesome feeling to know that you can approach the Creator with your thoughts and questions.
2. I want my kids to know that I love them — always and unconditionally, no matter what. Life is hard, but I want to be that one person who is always on their side. I know that I can’t always be there for them, but I can always root for them. They are in my heart and always will be.
3. I want my kids to make wise decisions — to think through their choices and to take responsibility for their actions. A well-considered decision is better than acting on impulse. Too many people make mistakes with far-reaching consequences by acting without thinking. Yet, I don’t want them to be afraid to make mistakes because it is through our mistakes that we learn.
Thanks to MamaBlogga for making me think through my priorities for my kids again.
