I am really blessed to have grandparents that live close enough to do things with my kids (this hasn't always been the case!). My girl went over and created a tiny fairy garden with my mom last weekend, and the photos my mom sent me got me thinking to what I'm tending.
There's so many things I want to give my children: real faith, a sense of adventure, creativity and ways to express it, a love of nature, a love of the written word, good work ethic, strong family ties, generous hands... The list goes on and on.
And it makes me step back and look at what I'm doing. I know that if I don't constantly fix my eyes on what I'm aiming for, I'll be swept away by the current.
It also makes me stop and look at what I'm doing in this space. Is it becoming what I want it to be or if I'm just following the current advice?
I don't really know the answers. But I do know that it's not a quick answer. It's long term and long haul and one choice at a time. I know I want to be helpful here, and I think I can best do that by being real (even if I never make a penny that way).
Have a beautiful day!
