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?
Brandy, at Kingdom Academy — Things Remembered
So I guess that’s the answer. When my kids get older I want them to remember that raising them was our top priority. And that spending time with them was what we chose to do, even if it meant a LOT of sacrifice on our part.
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 asaving 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.
From Marcy, at Ben and Me — I Want Him to Remember
Most of all, I want Ben to remember that God gave us to each other. That when this mom, struggling through infertility, received the call that a baby boy had been born and needed a momma, and I fell in love the moment I held him in my arms for the first time, it was no accident.
