Legacy

You know what the best feeling is in the whole wide, wide world? IMHO? It is knowing that your child conducts him/herself with honor, and that this has been done with no knowledge or input from you. That your child possesses principles and courage to stand behind those convictions.

Today, I had a glimpse of what I am leaving this world, and I can tell you that it is beautiful. Just beautiful.

It's those moments that make every little moment of motherhood so worthwhile, to catch a glimpse of the future and to know it's in safe hands :)

Yep, I always loved to see my children act the way they'd been taught...rather than the way they usually acted at home. It's great to know their internal compasses are pointing in the right direction.

Yessiree Bob!

Well done, Mama.

Paula said...

Amen!

Karen said...

Hallelujah! Great feeling, isn't it?

Kelly said...

Definitely a good feeling!

Bob said...

You are right, there is nothing like it. Nothing like the feeling that prayers were answered and some of efforts have borne fruit.
Good job!

Imagine that. Now that you've discovered that our moral compasses are properly polarized, maybe you can cut it out with the lectures.

HEY! It is a mother's job to lecture. Quit embarrassing me on my own blog, snot girl.
