Family is where the heart is

I love my family so much!

Two great things you can give your children: one is roots, the other is wings.
by: Hodding Carter

My dream for my kids is that they will be grounded in the Lord and have a strong sense of who they are.  My dream is for them to become visionaries; for them to dream of a better world and have the desire, strength and inner resources necessary to work towards achieving that goal.  I want them to be resilient and learn to sway when they are buffeted by life’s winds and storms.  And when they fly away from my nest, I want them to be shining beacons of light and hope.  I want them to exercise what we have taught them.  I want to be proud of the people they choose to be.  So as a parent I now choose to give my kids both roots and wings, so one day they will be grounded yet soar!
