my kids are all amazing. i just have to say that, for the record! i look at their little hands, their beautiful eyes, and their precious hearts, and i must declare that they truly are "fearfully and wonderfully made!" (ref. psalm 139:14)
one of my favorite ways to smile is to just think about these little munchkins that are the light of my life .... that brighten my day. i love to wonder what they will do with their lives. not in a "i need to push them to achieve" way, but just in a .... "where is God going to take you with your goals and dreams" way. call me silly .... but i reckon in my family, i've got the first aussie filipino who will end up being PM of Australia and President of the Philippines. okay, okay .... but i believe in my kids! (and i hope you believe in yours just as passionately!) i believe, with all my heart, in their abilities to be all that God has called them to be.
i only pray that i nurture and encourage, not nag and push. fine line sometimes. but one that must be walked if we are to fulfil the roles that God has given us. may i understand who they are .... and gently encouraging them to explore their world and develop their skills and abilities in a fun and engaging way.
so yeah .... i'm pretty proud of my kids. proud of who they are and all that they can be. and grateful, oh so grateful that God has entrusted them to me.
