Children remind us of our secrets, both happy and hidden. Every parent knows this.
Don’t believe me?
Just try wearing a goofy outfit or saying something the younger generation finds odd, amusing, or potentially embarrassing. You can bet it will be revealed.
Last week, I celebrated another birthday. I’m certainly for another year of living, breathing, and enjoying life on God’s earth. I’m not sure I wanted folks to know how many years I’ve enjoyed.
But plenty do – thanks to you-know-who.
Children are a blessing from God, to be sure. They surprise us and keep us glowing and guessing and growing in countless ways. Sometimes they stretch us in unexpected ways.
Once in a while, a child can rock a parent’s world with a simple gesture. Take a look:
Yep, I’m thankful for my kids.
That just about made my week. Nah, it made my year. I can hold on till my next birthday, just cherishing that sweet note.
Children are a gift from the LORD;
they are a reward from Him.
(Psalm 127:3, NLT)
