I have great joy in being a mother and parent. I pray for my kids each day and pray hard for many of the choices and ways they may go. I pray for hope in a dying world and for them to to take the road less traveled at times. For them to stand up for the weak and to hold their head high. I pray for them to be strong in their faith and not take life for granted. To be people of good character and not get caught up in world. To follow dreams and have open hearts and Mercy for others. To have passion and live with Christ like attitudes even when it is not easy to do. The prayers never end..
It all seems so hard some days and I wonder if my parenting is sinking in at times. We get two steps ahead and then take two steps back. I have such dreams for these kids and I know God will be with them even in those times that they don't follow the right path. I hope I can be the parent I need to be during these time. It is so exciting to see them growing up. They make me so proud. No matter what they do in life. I hope they always know how much I love them. If I succeed in that then I have done my job.
