Did someone tell you it was easy?
This is where we roll up our sleeves
And engage in the hard work of love.
It does not just happen.
We need to learn it.
Children need to learn it.
It isn’t always pretty.
Have you noticed?
Not a one of us is perfect.
Don’t give up.
Fathers, Mothers engage your children.
Teach them the art of:
Patience and Kindness are our friends.
They guide us along the path.
Children need to be taught by the ones who love them the most.
But all of their growing up years.
This is not a path for the faint of heart.
But don’t worry.
Even the faintest of hearts can be revived.
I have one.
