My best life’s work has been raising my boys. I take great pride in having these beautiful little pieces of me. I must say I am pretty hard on them when it comes to how they view the world around us. I encourage them to be confident, proud, fearless little boys. I dare them to open their hearts and love their neighbors. I want them to see people past their color, disabilities, abilities and not be quick to judge. I dare myself each day to become a better role model to my children. I dare myself to grow patience, practice positivity, become a doer not a sayer and mostly inspire.
I challenge my boys to not just see the glass half full, but to be part of a bigger story. Many days I fail, I have moments that I wish I could reverse time. I lose patience, spit out a curse word at the most inappropriate time and don’t always love thy neighbor. It’s moments like that where I know I am human, where I realize we are all mistake makers. As a parent I am fearless and seek out prayer, forgiveness and truth. How fearless are you as a parent?
I have to share this beautiful clip of the girls from Get Lit. My journey in life is more than just the title mom, I am an encourage-er, embrace-er, immerse-er, understand-er that dares to be a part of the bigger picture in our life’s journey, it’s fearless parenting!
