Today 33 ago, I gave birth to a lovely little “Chocolate drop’ we affectionately call “Candy”. She has maintained a beautiful spirit, a giving heart and a deep love for her family all of her life. She is a gift to our family, to her family now, and her friends, past, present and future I’m sure.
Happy birthday my love!
There is nothing more rewarding than watching your children grow and become productive adults, and wonderful people. It feels good when you realize they heard your words of correction and direction, even though it didn’t seem as though they were always listening. I am blessed to have that kind of pride in my children. It wasn’t always easy, and I see both my husband and myself in them, at times, the good, the bad, and the ugly! That comes with the territory.
No matter how hard it gets, and it does get hard, never give up on teaching, correcting and discipling your children. Find patience, pray for understanding and guidance as you do your best to be a good parent. We often told our children, “We are learning as we go. No one gave us a handbook on parenting”. Every child is different, and that makes it even harder sometimes but hang in there. It will get better “after while “.
