Today in Sunday school a great topic was brought up - character. How would I define my character - as good as it should be? Do I have my work cut out for myself? And what does my character say to my kids? When people think of me - what is the first thing they think about? This topic made me really think - Am I setting the example to my kids that I want them to learn.
My goal as a parent is to raise women of great character.. Women who are happy..... who are independent and self confident.... Women who know how to love without reservation.... Women who do not settle... and most of all.. women who know God and love Him with all their heart and soul. I want all that is good for both of my beautiful girls... I truly believe that they learn the most from me - as a woman - as their mom..... It is my job - my responsibility - my honor to teach these wonderful girls what good character is - by words, by actions, and by example... With that said - I have some major changes to make - my character is not as good as it should be.... don't get me wrong - I am not completely horrible (sometimes I can be - just ask my kids) but I have to be honest here.... I have some changes to make and they start right now.. today.... I think we all have work to do - we are not perfect yet...
