Childhood is fleeting. Ask any mom and she’ll tell you . . . the days are long, but the years are short. It does us all good to stop for a few moments and think about the legacy we’re leaving for our children. In the busyness of day-to-day life, at the end of their childhoods, what is it that you want them to remember? This week’s Blog Cruise poses that very question:
What’s the one thing you hope your children remember from their childhood?
From Nicole, at A Journey to Excellence — Being Here, There, and Wherever . . . A Priority
I don’t do everything right as a parent. But, I am involved. We are involved. We are always there, unless it is just physically impossible. Our kids are not lonely.
From Heather, at The Blessings Pour Out — All We Need is Love
When my children leave home, I want them to have on their minds that they are loved by the Lord, and I pray for each one of them that they come to a saving faith through Jesus Christ, and are fully committed to loving the Lord with all their hearts.
From Beth, at Ozark Ramblings —You must remember this
I spend a lot of time trying to fill my son’s head with facts–multiplication tables, dates from history, the taxonomy of a leopard, don’t take candy from strangers. What sticks should serve him well some day. But the one thing I hope he remembers from his childhood is that I love him and God loves him more.
