scars



My daughter makes me laugh. Sometimes I look at her and see myself many many years ago before life made me cynical. I pray every day that my child never experiences the pain that I did in my childhood. I pray that I'll be strong enough to show her the right path to choose when she comes to me with those questioning eyes. We have so much responsibility to help them through the hardships we know will surely come. Today I'm grateful for my scars because they give me strength.

    They need to have their own set of scars to be grateful for...

    Our hearts have grown from all we have gained in life ,through the good and the bad.
    We parents have to remember to let our babies explore,fall and heal ,so they will learn & grow.
    I will always be in the shadows incase they need me later in life.
    (like Nanny McPhee! lol )
    Happy HNT !
    Thanks for sharing ~

    She'll inheret the benefit of your scars and those of her own.

    She won't see your scars but she will benefit by them for sure.

    I'm going to love up my 2 yr old graddaughter this weekend. She doesn't see my scars but she gets the best of me cause I have 'em.

    I agree with everybody above completely--with a mother as enlightened and full of compassion as you, she is one lucky little girl.

    (and adorable, too!)

    Happy HNT.
