We are all different.
Love no matter what.
This video is quite moving. Worth the 14 min watch.
While in the grocery store today I saw several people I know. At two different parts of the store, I was blessed by being able to chat a bit with two older men who are dads to friends I went to school with. In both instances, I was greeted with big smiles and them letting me know how pretty I am. How sweet, right!? Lord knew I needed that! ((AND I have NO MAKE-UP on again today!))
What I realized after thinking about it, in both encounters, besides being happy to see me and making me feel great, they really bragged on their kids. I thought how sweet that was! I could tell they are both very proud of their children. It was nice to hear their short synopsis of their grown children and a bit about their grand kids as well. It’s great that they were able to speak freely about the love they have for them. BOTH of them used the word “BLESSED” in their descriptions–LOVE THAT! I believe that is what this world needs more of—Blessings being ACKNOWLEDGED and LOVE BEING SHOWN. Not in the kissy touchy feely sense (gag, SAY NO TO “PDA”), but in the genuine kind of love for each other that we should have.
I started to think of my own parents and how I don’t have them here to brag on me. I know, that seems a little selfish, but I don’t mean it that way. I just thought and wondered if they would both be as proud of me as these dads were of their children. I sure hope they would be! I hope they would be able to brag a little bit anyway.
I’d like to take this time to brag:
My older child is a beautiful young lady who can talk your ears off, yet even when she is babbling like there is no tomorrow, she is most always speaking with tones of love and is very caring. She is a sweet child. When she was little I called her my “sweetbaby” and she really has developed into a sweet young lady. I’m so proud of her athletic ability and her love for God and for people.
My little man is a witty thing. He says stuff out of the blue that gets me to giggling even though he doesn’t really show that side to other people. He wants to be a hunter just like his daddy and loves to watch THE RIFLEMAN! The fact that he likes vintage westerns really cracks me up. He loves to create stuff even if it’s just drawing a robot.
I have no HUGE aspirations for them to be doctors or lawyers (unless they want to be). I just want them to be happy people who have good character. And I don’t want to be one of those mommas that goes on and on about their kids and has no life because they live vicariously through their children. I want to be a proud mom that guides, supports and helps her children grow into GOD FEARING, responsible, family loving individuals who I’ll always be able to brag on– even if it’s only for about 2 minutes in the middle of the grocery store!
