The Lessons We Teach Our Children

When our babies are first handed to us, thoughts of loving and keeping them healthy and safe fill our minds.

As they get bigger, we think about how important it is to feed them nutritious foods and teach them what it means to healthy.

But, what we don’t always think about along the way is just how much they are learning from us every single day.

When we are irritable or resilient or good natured, a bit of us rubs off onto them.

Aside from the tangible needs that we must meet for our children…food, shelter, clothing…the list of intangibles that are also important is a mile long.

I hope that I’ve taught her something about taking risks and reaching for her dreams.

I’m sharing the rest of this story over on in these small moments
