A Mother's Letter to Her Children.
My Wish for You.
Know that my love is infallible, but that I am not.
Know that I’m quick to anger, Know that I will sometimes let you down. Know that since you were born there has been nothing on this earth that has consumed my thoughts more than you.
Know that when life knocks you down and has you against the wall, no one will have your back like your father and I. Know that when mistakes are made that our love for you will never waver.
Know that no matter the distance you’re always close at heart, in thought and most of all in our prayers. There will be no other person on this earth save one, who will be completely thrilled that you were born. That person will be the one you choose to marry. Even they, though they may try, will never match the love that comes from us, your parents.
My Heart, My Loves
What is the greatest gift a parent can give to a child?
How to show your children that you love them.
Believe in the beauty of your dreams.
When they dare to dream.
When a child comes to you with a wish, a dream, do not discourage them. Help support and encourage them. It should go without saying that as a parent one should encourage them to chase the dreams that are attainable.
You're doing children a disservice when you encourage them to try something outside of their scope of capabilities. This isn't saying that one should never try, trying builds confidence failing builds character.
There are dreams that will always be that, just dreams. But for the ones that can truly be attained, the best gift one can give a child is the faith that they can achieve whatever it is their heart desires.
