A Beautiful Responsibility

A few of our close supporters have commented on how this journey will help us deeply appreciate being parents when the time comes.  So true.  Parenting can be very hard and you don’t have to be a parent to know that. We know that this journey has taught us a lifelong lesson.  It has helped us appreciate being parents and it has forever made us appreciate our children.

We asked our readers on the hardest night of our lives (here) for a very special favor. “Cherish and savor all of the gifts your children give you minute by minute.  Hold them and speak to them like a mature soul.  Let them know how proud you are of them and how great you think they are.”

To continue this request, we would like to plug a beautiful blog post on Patheos.com which can deepen your appreciation of God’s greatest gift of life.  In this blog post, the writer discusses an awesome article by Pope Francis. “parents are the first face of Christ to their children, and this is a beautiful responsibility.”

Here is the link.  Enjoy! ( Pope Francis Encourages Parents to “Waste Time with their Children” )
