This ripped-out piece from a magazine really touched me. How ’bout you?
Believe me, I KNOW from experience that our children DO take their own paths, learn their own lessons, and find their own ways on what seems at times a bumpy route….BUT I have also seen that they DO study us, learn from us, soak us up when we least expect it…and count on what they’ve seen in those moments that really matter. Our perspective is SO catching….We are our child’s “Top 10 Model”, like it or not. Simple, but true. What a precious opportunity we have. For me, it has kept me on the straight and narrow (not to be confused with being on the road less traveled, taking an out-of-the-box view, or shifting my paradigm midstream)…in hopes that my daughters and students would glimpse that uplifted and pure scenery that is our choice to see each day.
