his growing up thing is scary business. and trying to guide them in the right direction so that they grow up into good beings is so much harder than i could have ever imagined. i pray everyday for the strength to do it the best i can. sometimes i fall short and feel a bit defeated but i pick myself up and dust myself off and tell myself i will do better tomorrow.
i came across two quotes recently that reminded me of something i would want to tell my three over and over as they grow…
“don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try.”
“don’t make somebody a priority if they only make you an option.” (that’s a good one for the dating years)
